One hundred phenotypic characteristics were determined for 138 clinical and environmental Aeromonas strains. Cluster analysis revealed three major phenons equivalent to the A. hydrophila, A. caviae, and A. sobria groups, each of which contained more than one genospecies and more than one named species. An excellent correlation was found between phenotypic identification and classification based on DNA relatedness. DNA hybridization groups within each of the phenotypic groups were also separable… CONTINUE READING
