Abstract

This revised road map and the resulting taxonomic outline update the previous versions of Garrity and Holt (2001) and Garrity et al. (2005) with the description of additional taxa and new phylogenetic analyses. While the road map seeks to be complete for all taxa validly named prior to 1 January 2008, some taxa described after that date are included.

Keywords

Type Species Mycolic Acid Family Tree Large Clade Chemotaxonomic Marker 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
