The genera Actinomyces, belong to the fermentative Actinomycetes group. They cause a number of diseases, notably, actinomycosis and some opportunistic diseases. Actinomycetes have some unique properties that may be related to their ability to survive and grow in the soils. They are prolific producers of extracellular enzymes that degrade the complex macromolecule substrates commonly found in soils. The dessication resistance properties of spore formers such as Streptomyces are likely to be important to survive in soils that are often dry. Kenknight and Munaiers medium is used for isolating Actinomyces species from soil samples.
