Abstract

Summary: A total of 13 species of lithotrophic ammonia-oxidizing bacteria assigned to the genus were characterized. DNA homologies, G + C content of the DNA, shape and ultrastructure of the cells, salt requirements, ammonia tolerance, utilization of urea as ammonia source, and whole-cell protein patterns were analysed. In addition to the described species and ?? eight new species are established. The names sp. nov., sp. nov., sp. nov., sp. nov., sp. nov., sp. nov., sp. nov. and sp. nov. are proposed.
