Classification, nomenclature, and plant pathogenic bacteria - a clarification.

by J M Young, C T Bull, S H De Boer, G Firrao, L Gardan, G E Saddler, D E Stead, Y Takikawa
Phytopathology ()


ABSTRACT In a recent Letter to the Editor of Phytopathology, proposals were made for endorsement and for rejection of selected names of plant pathogenic Pseudomonas spp. and Xanthomonas spp. We believe that support for, and rejection of, several names was based on misconceptions concerning the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names and entails misinterpretations of several Rules of the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria. This letter aims to clarify those misconceptions and misinterpretations.
