The diazotrophic alpha proteobacteria
was represented by Azospirillum sp.
Isolation of new fastidious alpha Proteobacteria
and Afipia felis from hospital water supplies by direct plating and amoebal co-culture procedures.
It is a member of the alpha proteobacteria
, a group which includes phototropic bacteria, Rickettsia, and Sphingomonas.
A majority of the bacteria identified belonged to the Cytophaga-Flavobacter and Alpha proteobacteria
Currently, 6 genera of acetic acid bacteria are recognized in the Alpha Proteobacteria
All these clones were closely related to a group of alpha proteobacteria
that includes the genera Roseobacter, Rhodovulum, Rhodobacter, and Paracoccus.
