The Genus Bdellovibrio

  • Edward G. Ruby

Abstract

Fewer than 30 years ago Stolp isolated the first representative of a group of bacteria that form plaques on lawns of other Gram-negative bacteria (Stolp and Petzold, 1962). Subsequently, this group of bacteriolytic microorganisms was described as a new genus, Bdellovibrio (Stolp and Starr, 1963). Since that time there has been a rapid increase in our understanding of the ecology, physiology, and biochemistry of the bdellovibrios, as well as the beginning of an understanding of their phylogeny and genetics.
