ABSTRACT
The rumen ciliate Epidinium ecaudatum was grown in vitro in one species culture. The culture medium consisting of salt solution, powdered hay and wheat gluten provided appropriate conditions for maintenance of the protozoa. The population density was influenced by the proportion of cellulose, starch and urea in the culture medium as well as by the solubility of protein. The ciliates did not require rumen fluid for the growth.
