A polyphasic taxonomic study was performed to characterize dissimilatory iron-reducing strains mostly isolated from Antarctic sea ice. The strains were isolated from samples of congelated (land-fast) sea ice, grease ice, and ice algal biomass collected from the coastal areas of the Vestfold Hills in eastern Antarctica (68 degrees S 78 degrees E). The strains were facultatively anaerobic, motile, and rod shaped, were capable of anaerobic growth either by fermentation of carbohydrates or by…

Shewanella vesiculosa sp. nov., a psychrotolerant bacterium isolated from an Antarctic coastal area.
On the basis of the data from this polyphasic taxonomic study, M7(T) and M5 constitute a single genospecies, for which the name Shewanella vesiculosa sp.
Shewanella marinintestina sp. nov., Shewanella schlegeliana sp. nov. and Shewanella sairae sp. nov., novel eicosapentaenoic-acid-producing marine bacteria isolated from sea-animal intestines.
Three novel Shewanella species are described on the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic studies and it is indicated that the novel isolates were divided into three groups at sufficient phylogenetic distance to indicate that they are different species.
Shewanella amazonensis sp. nov., a novel metal-reducing facultative anaerobe from Amazonian shelf muds.
Strain SB2BT is exceptionally active in the anaerobic reduction of iron, manganese and sulfur compounds and represents a distinct bacterial species within the genus Shewanella, supported by cellular fatty acid profiles and phenotypic characterization.
Shewanella algicola sp. nov., a marine bacterium isolated from brown algae.
A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped bacterium motile by means of a single polar flagella, strain ST-6T, was isolated from a brown alga collected in Jeju, Republic of Korea and is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Shewanella.
Shewanella irciniae sp. nov., a novel member of the family Shewanellaceae, isolated from the marine sponge Ircinia dendroides in the Bay of Villefranche, Mediterranean Sea.

The strain could be differentiated from other Shewanella species by its inability to reduce nitrate or produce H(2)S and by 10-22 additional phenotypic characteristics.
Shewanella hafniensis sp. nov. and Shewanella morhuae sp. nov., isolated from marine fish of the Baltic Sea.
Two novel species belonging to the genus Shewanella are described on the basis of their phenotypic characteristics, phylogenetic analyses of 16S rRNA and gyrB gene sequences and levels of DNA-DNA hybridization, and comparative comparisons between the two novel species.
Shewanella waksmanii sp. nov., isolated from a sipuncula (Phascolosoma japonicum).
Phylogenetic evidence, confirmed by DNA hybridization and phenotypic characteristics revealed that the two bacteria studied constitute a new species, Shewanella waksmanii sp.
Shewanella halifaxensis sp. nov., a novel obligately respiratory and denitrifying psychrophile.
A novel obligately respiratory, denitrifying and RDX-mineralizing bacterium was isolated from the marine sediment, indicating that strain HAW-EB4T (= NCIMB 14093T = DSM 17350T) is the type strain of a novel species of Shewanella, for which the name She Swanella halifaxensis sp.
Shewanella psychromarinicola sp. nov., a psychrophilic bacterium isolated from pelagic sediment of the Ross Sea (Antarctica), and reclassification of Shewanella arctica Kim et al. 2012 as a later heterotypic synonym of Shewanella frigidimarina Bowman et al. 1997.
Overall genome relatedness indices indicated that M2T and R106 represented a single genomic species, which was clearly distinguishable from the phylogenetically close relatives with lower values of species delineation thresholds.
Shewanella japonica sp. nov.
Phylogenetic evidence, together with phenotypic characteristics, showed that the two isolates studied constitute a novel species of the genus Shewanella, and the name Shewanela japonica is proposed.


Taxonomy of Aerobic Marine Eubacteria
Two hundred and eighteen strains of nonfermentative marine bacteria were submitted to an extensive morphological, physiological, and nutritional characterization, finding that the majority of these groups were separable by a large number of unrelated phenotypic traits.
Gram-Negative Mesophilic Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria
The utilization of polysaccharides or polypeptides, such as has been observed with the extremely thermophilic sulfate-reducing archaebacterium Archaeoglobus (Stetter, 1988; Stetter et al., 1987), has not been reported for mesophobic sulfate reducers.
Growth of the facultative anaerobe Shewanella putrefaciens by elemental sulfur reduction.
The sulfur-dependent growth of the facultatively anaerobic mesophile Shewanella putrefaciens is described and several lines of evidence indicate that cell-to-sulfur contact is not required for growth.
Alteromonas colwelliana sp. nov., an Isolate from Oyster Habitats
This organism is a gram-negative, marine, aerobic, polarly flagellated rod-shaped bacterium that can grow as filamentous helices, synthesize melanin, and excrete acidic polysaccharide exopolymer.
Taxonomy of four marine bacterial strains that produce tetrodotoxin.
Four strains of tetrodotoxin-producing bacteria isolated from a red alga and from pufferfish were characterized. Two of these strains are members of the genus Listonella MacDonell and Colwell. The
The ribonucleotide sequence of 5s rRNA from two strains of deep-sea barophilic bacteria.
Deep-sea bacteria isolated from the digestive tract of animals inhabiting depths of 5900 m in the Puerto Rico Trench and 4300 m near the Walvis Ridge confirmed relationship to the Vibrio-Photobacterium group, as represented by V. harveyi and P. phosphoreum, but the barophiles were clearly distinct from these species.
Direct sequencing of the polymerase chain reaction-amplified 16S rRNA gene of Flavobacterium gondwanense sp. nov. and Flavobacterium salegens sp. nov., two new species from a hypersaline Antarctic lake.
Phenotypic data and phospholipid ester-linked fatty acid profiles indicate that pigmented bacterial strains isolated from a hypersaline Antarctic lake are members of the "flavobacterium-bacteroides" phylum and may represent new taxa and phylogenetic analysis showed that the Antarctic strains were phylogenetically distinct.
