The Marine Clade of the Family Flavobacteriaceae: The Genera Aequorivita, Arenibacter, Cellulophaga, Croceibacter, Formosa, Gelidibacter, Gillisia, Maribacter, Mesonia, Muricauda, Polaribacter, Psychroflexus, Psychroserpens, Robiginitalea, Salegentibacter, Tenacibaculum, Ulvibacter, Vitellibacter and Zobellia

  • John P. Bowman


The family Flavobacteriaceae represents a major branch of the Gram-negative phylum Bacteroidetes that is also popularly referred to as the “Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides group or phylum” (see The List of Bacterial Names with Standing in Nomenclature website for official taxonomic names). In the last decade the Flavobacteriaceae has undergone rapid expansion incorporating many new species and genera, mostly from marine and polar ecosystems. A standardized minimal set of criteria has been recently established for the description of new members of this taxonomic group (Bernardet et al., 2002). Several genera within the family, most obviously Flavobacterium (Bernardet et al., 1996), have undergone substantial taxonomic revision. This heightened activity has at least partially come in response to the increasing evidence that this homogenously chemoheterotrophic group has environmental significance in aquatic ecosystems. Recent research indicates the marine genera of the...
