BCL3 and Sheehy cite Bergey's manual of determinative bacteriology of which systematic bacteriology, first edition, is an expansion. With v.4 the set is complete. The volumes cover, roughly, v.1, the Gram-negatives except those in v.3 ($87.95); v.2, the Gram-positives less actinomycetes ($71.95); v.

Miscellaneous Clostridial Infections

Of the 85 species recognized in the 9th edition of Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology, 20 are important pathogens in humans, and the most commonly encountered clostridial diseases in humans are of endogenous origin.

Taxonomy of the Family Pasteurellaceae Pohl 1981

The family Pasteurellaceae Pohl 1981 was conceived to accomodate a large group of Gram-negative chemoorganotrophic, facultatively anaerobic, and fermentative bacteria including the genera Pasteurella, Actinobacillus, Haemophilus, and several other groups of organisms that exhibit complex phenotypic and genotypic relationships with the aforementioned genera.


Experiments on the facets of the nature of coliform (Klebsiella) bacteria in parts of the Sydney water system demonstrated multi-resistance to twenty antibiotics that exceeded or equalled results reported from other habitats.

Meningitis due toGemella haemolysans

The schema shown in Table 1 is helpful in differentiating Haemophilus aphrophilus from these organisms with similar characteristics and requires tests for acid production with maltose, lactose, xylose and mannitol, indole production and nitrate reduction.

Phylogenetic evidence for reclassification of Calymmatobacterium granulomatis as Klebsiella granulomatis comb. nov.

By sequencing a total of 2089 bp of the 16S rRNA and phoE genes it was demonstrated that Calymmatobacterium granulomatis shows a high level of identity with Klebsiella species pathogenic to humans.

Endotoxins of Pseudomonas fluorescens.

The endotoxins (LPS) of microbial cells are responsible for the mechanisms of interaction between micro- and macroorganisms in the infectious process and were studied in P. fluorescens.

Infections Caused by Miscellaneous Gram-Negative Aerobic Bacteria

Cardiobacterium hominis, formerly called CDC group lid, is a rare cause of subacute bacterial endocarditis and appears to be unrelated to the age or sex of the individual, and antibody against C. hominis is not detected in carriers.

Molecular Biology of the Fimbriae of Dichelobacter (Previously Bacteroides) nodosus

Although the exact function of D. nodosus fimbriae has not yet been clearly defined, they appear to play a central role in the invasion by the bacterium of the epidermal matrix of the hoof.
