The taxonomy of the peptococcaceae

  • Ch. Romond


Current problems in the classification and identification ofPeptococcaceae with special reference to clinically significant species are discussed briefly. Further research is needed to clarify most of the existing discrepancies.

Die Taxonomie der Peptococcaceae


Aktuelle Probleme in der Klassifizierung und Identifizierung vonPeptococcaceae werden unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der klinisch wichtigen Spezies kurz diskutiert. Weitere Forschung ist nötig, um die meisten gegenwärtigen Widersprüche zu klären.
