The family brevinemataceae

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Although originally placed within the phylum Spirochaetes, the extensive genetic diversity of the Spirochaetes as revealed by further phylogenetic analyses, it is now proposed that the four families of this phylum should be elevated to the order-level taxonomic ranks, viz. Spirochaetales, Brevinematales ord. nov., Brachyspiriales ord. nov., and Leptospiriales ord. nov. The type genus of Brevinemataceae is Brevinema, and the type species is Brevinema andersonii (ATCC 43811).
