Abstract

The halophilic Archaea of the family (36 genera with 129 species with standing in nomenclature as of November 2011) provide an excellent example of how changing concepts on prokaryote taxonomy and the development of new methods have influenced the way in which the taxonomy of a single group of prokaryotes is treated. This review gives an overview of the taxonomy of the family , showing the impact that methods of phenotypic characterization, numerical taxonomy, chemotaxonomy and especially polar lipid analysis, 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons, multilocus type analysis and comparative genomics have had on their classification.
