The Genus Siderocapsa (and Other Iron- or Manganese-Oxidizing Eubacteria)

  • Hans H. Hanert

Abstract

This chapter discusses those species of Siderocapsa and members of the family Siderocapsaceae (Pribram, 1929) whose morphology, ecology, and to some extent, culture physiology, have been so exactly described that, in spite of disagreement concerning their taxonomic position, there can be no doubt of their existence and great ecological significance. The discussion concentrates on such existing and ecologically significant representatives of this family in order to preserve the practical orientation of this Handbook. Information on many genera and species whose position is uncertain has been drawn together in Bergey’s Manual of Determinative Bacteriology, eighth edition (Buchanan and Gibbons, 1974; contributor G. A. Zavarzin) and seventh edition (Breed et al., 1957; contributor R. S. Breed in cooperation with H. Beger) and by Dorff (1934). A comparison of the genera and species treated in these references provides a bird’s-eye view of this entire group of organisms.
