Abstract

Six main groups were formed from a complete linkage dendrogram on 557 bacteria tested for 53 physiological features. The organisms were obtained from culture collections and included representatives of the following genera: and The six groups were individually subjected to a numerical taxonomic analysis based on linkage maps, which resulted in a total of 33 subclusters. An identification key to determine the affiliation of the bacteria to the six main clusters and five group-specific schemes is presented. Reference strains are proposed for the 33 subclusters.
