I am interested in finding out specific pages in Bergey's Manual
of Determinative Bacteriology and Bergey's Manual of Systematic
Bacteriology which refers to a Lactose fermentation of a bacterira
with gas production.  So far, I have almost looked at most of the tables
and no table mention about lactose fermentation with gas production.  However,
the tables mention about glucose fermentation with gas production.  Is there
a difference between the glucose and lactose fermentation?  Is Bergey's assuming
that if there is gas production in glucose, then the bacteria should also
have gas production in lactose?
