Abstract

The question is asked, Has the application of numerical taxonomy in microbiology been sufficiently extensive to permit the construction of a general classification of bacteria from exclusively numerical taxonomy data? A semiquantitative method of pooling (or interlocking) the results of numerical taxonomies was applied to three wide-ranging studies, using concepts of “specific” and “generalized” taxonomic spaces. Difficulties of the method are discussed and some alternative approaches to the problem are outlined.
