Fibrobacter succinogenes is a major cellulolytic species in the rumen. On the basis of molecular data, this species can be classified into four phylogenetic groups. Recently gathered ecological and physiological data have revealed the importance of this species, particularly phylogenetic group 1, in rumen fiber digestion. These data indicate that group 1 should be the focus of future efforts to maximize the fibrolytic function of the rumen.
