Geographic distribution at subspecies resolution level: closely related Rhodopirellula species in European coastal sediments


Members of the marine genus Rhodopirellula are attached living bacteria and studies based on cultured Rhodopirellula strains suggested that three closely related species R. baltica, ‘R. europaea’ and ‘R. islandica’ have a limited geographic distribution in Europe. To address this hypothesis, we developed a nested PCR for a single gene copy detection of a… (More)
