1. Introduction. In a recent paper (1) it was remarked that the theory of zero-dimensional spaces is exactly that part of general topology which can be described in terms of equivalence relations. Here, it will be shown how this idea can be used to obtain the following characterizations of certain types of zero-dimensional spaces:
