  • a Top match as determined by the BLAST method. The BLAST program was described by Altschul et al. (1); str. denotes 16S rRNA gene sequences from cultivated bacteria, while env. denotes sequences detected as PCR-amplified products in complex microbial communities.

  • b Parentheses indicate that a genus affiliation is tentative based on 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities.
