Numerical Taxonomy of Moderately Halophilic Gram-negative Rods
Summary: A study was made of 516 randomly selected isolates of moderately halophilic bacteria from solar salterns showing salinities between 8.8 and 40.0% (w/v) total salts, located in S.E. Spain.Expand

Halobacillus gen. nov., with Descriptions of Halobacillus litoralis sp. nov. and Halobacillus trueperi sp. nov., and Transfer of Sporosarcina halophila to Halobacillus halophilus comb. nov.
Two moderately halophilic, gram-positive, heterotrophic bacterial strains were isolated from hypersaline sediments of the Great Salt Lake in Utah. These two strains, designated SL-4T (T = typeExpand

New Abundant Microbial Groups in Aquatic Hypersaline Environments
We describe the microbiota of two hypersaline saltern ponds, one of intermediate salinity (19%) and a NaCl saturated crystallizer pond (37%) using pyrosequencing. The analyses of these metagenomesExpand

Phylogeny of the family Halomonadaceae based on 23S and 165 rDNA sequence analyses.
In this study, we have evaluated the phylogenetic status of the family Halomonadaceae, which consists of the genera Halomonas, Chromohalobacter and Zymobacter, by comparative 23S and 16S rDNAExpand

Emended descriptions of genera of the family Halobacteriaceae.
The family Halobacteriaceae currently contains 96 species whose names have been validly published, classified in 27 genera (as of September 2008). In recent years, many novel species have been addedExpand
