Although] the indispensability of physiological characters for the purpose of classification has also been generally accepted. . 1 How We Do, Don’t and Should Look at Bacteria and Bacteriology witnessed their ever increasing use. . The fundamental nature of the energy providing processes justifies the view that they should be rated first amongst the physiological characters suitable for classification. . Because the classification sought was a natural one, the kinds of choices Kluyver and van Niel were entertaining required the answers to certain evolutionary questions.

Only with the later accumulation of large numbers of bacterial species (mainly through enrichment culturing) would the problem of their classification become a choking one, and only then, when traditional taxonomic approaches failed to yield a satisfactory (natural) classification system, would the problem become genuinely acute (Stanier and van Niel, 1962). Beijerinck’s successor at Delft was Albert Jan Kluyver. A brilliant and sophisticated scientist, Kluyver was by training a biochemist, not a microbiologist.
