Systematics of Bacteria

  • Otto Kandler
  • Karl-Heinz Schleifer
Part of the Progress in Botany/Fortschritte der Botanik book series (BOTANY, volume 42)


This first report on bacterial systematics pubslihed in Progress in Botany is not restricted to the progress achieved during the last two years, but also includes earlier papers and reviews, important for the development of bacterial nomenclature and systematics. The most recent efforts to arrive at a natural system of bacteria are emphasized.


Teichoic Acid Mycolic Acid Determinative Bacteriology Coryneform Bacterium Wall Teichoic Acid
