Strain QLW-P1FAT50C-4T, isolated from a shallow, acidic freshwater pond located in the Austrian Alps at an altitude of 1300 m, was characterized by investigation of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genomic traits. As shown previously, phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences placed the strain in the cryptic species complex PnecC within the genus Polynucleobacter. The major fatty acids of the strain were C16 : 1ω7c and C18 : 1ω7c. The strain has a genome of 2.23 Mbp with a DNA G+C…

Polynucleobacter sphagniphilus sp. nov. a planktonic freshwater bacterium isolated from an acidic and humic freshwater habitat.
TLDR
Pairwise whole genome average nucleotide identity comparisons with genome sequences of strains representing the six previously described species of the subcluster resulted throughout in values <78 %, which clearly suggested that strain MWH-Weng1-1T represents a novel species.
Polynucleobacter aenigmaticus sp. nov. isolated from the permanently anoxic monimolimnion of a temperate meromictic lake.
TLDR
This strain is the first strain of the genus Polynucleobacter found to encode a proteorhodopsin-like protein but, in contrast to some other strains affiliated to this genus, it does not encode a putative anoxygenic photosynthesis system.
Polynucleobacter hirudinilacicola sp. nov. and Polynucleobacter campilacus sp. nov., both isolated from freshwater systems.
TLDR
It is suggested that strains M WH-EgelM1-30-B4T and MWH-Feld-100T represent two novel Polynucleobacter species, which are proposed for these novel species the names Polyn nucleobacter hirudinilacicola sp.
Polynucleobacter paneuropaeus sp. nov., characterized by six strains isolated from freshwater lakes located along a 3000 km North-South gradient across Europe
TLDR
Comparative genome analyses reveal that the six strains form a genomically coherent group characterized by whole-genome average nucleotide identity (gANI) values of > 98% but separated from the type strains and representatives of the 16 previously described Polynucleobacter species.
Polynucleobacter paneuropaeus sp. nov., characterized by six strains isolated from freshwater lakes located along a 3000 km north-south cross-section across Europe.
TLDR
Comparative genome analyses reveal that the six strains form a genomically coherent group characterized by whole-genome average nucleotide identity (gANI) values of >98% but separated by gANI values of <88% from the type strains and representatives of the 16 previously described Polynucleobacter species, a monophyletic cluster that is clearly separated from all other described species.
Reclassification of a Polynucleobacter cosmopolitanus strain isolated from tropical Lake Victoria as Polynucleobacter victoriensis sp. nov.
TLDR
This investigation suggests that PnecD represents an additional cryptic species complex within the genus Polynucleobacter that was not resolved by 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses.
Genomic divergence and cohesion in a species of pelagic freshwater bacteria
TLDR
The high extent of homologous recombination among P. asymbioticus bacteria can act as a cohesive force that effectively counteracts genetic divergence in geographically separated ecosystems and therefore plays an important role in the evolution and consistency of bacterial freshwater species.
Cryptophyta as major bacterivores in freshwater summer plankton
TLDR
This study is the first report that colorless Cryptophyta are major bacterivores in summer plankton samples and can play a key role in the carbon transfer from prokaryotes to higher trophic levels.
Continental-Scale Gene Flow Prevents Allopatric Divergence of Pelagic Freshwater Bacteria
TLDR
It is concluded that allopatric divergence in European P. paneuropaeus is minor, and that effective gene flow across the sampled geographic range in combination with a high recombination efficacy maintains species coherence.

TLDR
The microbiota of four breeding sites for Anopheles darlingi, the most important malaria vector in Latin America, are explored and it is concluded that An.

TLDR
It is concluded that a Polynucleobacter population with an extremely low intraspecific diversity and an uneven structure numerically dominated the bacterioplankton community in the investigated habitat.

TLDR
The first freshwater members of the class Actinobacteria that have been isolated from five freshwater habitats in Europe and Asia are described and it is demonstrated that at least one of the ultramicrobacteria isolated is protected against predation by the bacterivorous nanoflagellate Ochromonas sp.
Complete ecological isolation and cryptic diversity in Polynucleobacter bacteria not resolved by 16S rRNA gene sequences
TLDR
The revealed ecological isolation and cryptic diversity in Polynucleobacter bacteria is crucial in the interpretation of diversity studies on freshwater bacterioplankton based on ribosomal sequences.
Isolation of Strains Belonging to the Cosmopolitan Polynucleobacter necessarius Cluster from Freshwater Habitats Located in Three Climatic Zones
  • M. Hahn
  • Environmental Science, Biology
    Applied and Environmental Microbiology
  • 2003
TLDR
More than 40 bacterial strains belonging to the cosmopolitan Polynucleobacter necessarius cluster (Betaproteobacteria) were isolated from a broad spectrum of freshwater habitats located in three climatic zones, showing that the previous lack of isolates cannot be explained by a lack of appropriate media.
