English term or phrase: stress bacteria
Hola colegas: estoy con un proyecto referente a productos químicos en la industria papelera, y estoy confundida con este término: stress bacteria.

Este es el contexto:

Due to stable process conditions, process bacteria remained in their growth mode, and process spore counts were at low level.
Due to technical reasons, mill started a new process chemical treatment on Sep 3rd.
This decreased ORP level of process and started to stress bacteria causing sporulation (data not shown).

Gracias!

  -> Gracias, lorenita! Y muy buena la referencia, aunque en castellano no funciona igual de bien lo de "estresar" a las bacterias; funciona mucho mejor en cambio "someterlas a estrés".
