In this paper, thermograms of eight bacteria and growth curves in exponential phase of growth are presented. Growth rate constants and their temperature dependent non-linear equations axe also established. The optimum growth temperature of these bacteria can be easily calculated from such equations. It is very informative for the study of microorganism growth.

Key words: Microcalorimetry, Thermogram, Growth rate constant, Optimum growth temperature
