Notable FamiliesEdit

The Acetobacteraceae comprise the acetic acid bacteria, which are heterotrophic and produce acetic acid during their respiration.[2]

The Rhodospirillaceae include mainly purple nonsulfur bacteria, which produce energy through photosynthesis.[2]

PhylogenyEdit

The currently accepted taxonomy is based on the List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN).[1] The phylogeny is based on whole-genome analysis.[3][a]
