## Abstract

A graph property is any nonempty isomorphism-closed class of simple (finite or infinite) graphs. A graph property is of finite character if a graph G has a property if and only if every finite induced subgraph of G has a property . Let ₁,₂,...,ₙ be graph properties of finite character, a graph G is said to be (uniquely) (₁, ₂, ...,ₙ)-partitionable if there is an (exactly one) partition V₁, V₂, ..., Vₙ of V(G) such that $G\left[{V}_{i}\right]{\in }_{i}$ for i = 1,2,...,n. Let us denote by ℜ = ₁ ∘ ₂ ∘ ... ∘ ₙ the class of all (₁,₂,...,ₙ)-partitionable graphs. A property ℜ = ₁ ∘ ₂ ∘ ... ∘ ₙ, n ≥ 2 is said to be reducible. We prove that any reducible additive graph property ℜ of finite character has a uniquely (₁, ₂, ...,ₙ)-partitionable countable generating graph. We also prove that for a reducible additive hereditary graph property ℜ of finite character there exists a weakly universal countable graph if and only if each property ${}_{i}$ has a weakly universal graph.
