The Family Eubacteriaceae

Reference work entry

Abstract

The family Eubacteriaceae, defined by the phylogenetic position of its members, comprises the genera Eubacterium, Acetobacterium, Alkalibacter, Alkalibaculum, Anaerofustis, Garciella, and Pseudoramibacter. Only those few species are members of the authentic genus Eubacterium which are phylogenetically related to the type species Eubacterium limosum. Non-authentic Eubacterium species are phylogenetically placed in other families with more close relationships to species of other genera. As nearly all authentic and non-authentic members of Eubacteriaceae have been extensively covered in the chapter on the genus Eubacterium in the latest edition of Bergey’s Manual, 2nd ed., Firmicutes (Ludwig et al. 2009), this communication will be restricted to taxa described since then.
