Abstract

ABSTRACT

In consideration of the genera proposed for the family , weighted considerations were given to the factors of morphology, carbon dioxide and oxygen utilization, anaerobic and aerobic fermentation balances, glucose metabolism, presence of catalase and haemoproteins, and cell wall composition. Primarily, on the basis of cell wall composition but strongly supported by metabolic and fermentation characteristics, it was concluded the genus belongs in the family . Similarly, the genus is more suitable within the family or . The family would retain , and
