Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans vs Thiobacillus ferroxidans

What is the difference between Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans versus Thiobacillus ferroxidans? i have been having trouble in differentiating the two.

Rf values differ under different conditions, thus you can't find Rf tables. ...maybe that was the controversy you were talking about...we did this in the laboratory using different amino acids and Coleus extract. i suggest you look up on the component of your spinach and take it from there...deducti...

Basal area of multi-branched/stemmed mangal

_at_ Chris4: from what i inferred from the site, the only plausible cause is the birds. i agree with you, check the source. is there is a specific species of birds acting as predators to this toads? have there been any records of similar phenomena in the past? surely this didn't jst happen recently....
