Abstract

One hundred and seven strains of and Spirillum were examined for 175 morphological, physiological, biochemical, and nutritional characteristics. The results were analyzed by the method of numerical taxonomy. The deoxyribonucleic acid base composition of the strains was also determined. Marked phenetic differences were found between and , with species of the genus demonstrating more versatile biochemical capabilities. The numerical taxonomy and molecular genetic data are in agreement with the recently suggested assignment of selected strains to the genera and Aquaspirillum.
