Abstract Three different isolates of Pseudomonas and two of Mycobacterium capable of the utilization of camphor as sole carbon source were isolated from soil. Evidence was obtained indicating that the strains of Pseudomonas and one of the strains of Mycobacterium metabolize camphor via pathways already described for Ps. putida. The other strain of Mycobacterium appeared to use a different pathway involving the 6-exo-hydroxylation of camphor. The disappearance of camphor and the time course of accumulation of intermediates in its degradation is described for one strain of Pseudomonas.
