Abstract

DNA–16SrRNA hybridization studies of archaebacterial halophiles revealed nine major groups. High (>45%) DNA–DNA homologies were found only within DNA–rRNA groups. The DNA–DNA homology between the type strains of and was > 70%. The implications for the taxonomy of the extreme halophiles are discussed.
