Abbreviation Taxonomic information Description
Cwat Crocosphaera watsonii Bacteria; Cyanobacteria; Chroococcales; Crocosphaera Crocosphaera watsonii is a diazotroph that contributes to the global cycling of nitrogen and carbon through the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen and photosynthesis
Rpal Rhodopseudomonas palustris Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Alphaproteobacteria; Rhizobiales; Bradyrhizobiaceae; Rhodopseudomonas Rhodopseudomonas bacteria are purple nonsulfur phototrophic organisms that can be found many types of marine environments and soils. It converts sunlight into energy and converts atmospheric carbon dioxide into biomass. R. palustris can degrade and recycle several aromatic compounds that make up lignin, which makes it useful in removing this type of waste from the environment. In addition, R. palustris converts N2 into NH4 and H2 (used as a biofuel)
Rhiz Rhizobium sp. NGR234 Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Alphaproteobacteria; Rhizobiales; Rhizobiaceae; Rhizobium/Agrobacterium group; Rhizobium. Rhizobium sp. strain NGR234 is a unique alphaproteobacterium (order Rhizobiales) that forms nitrogen-fixing nodules with more legumes than any other microsymbiont.
Mnod Methylobacterium nodulans Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Alphaproteobacteria; Rhizobiales; Methylobacteriaceae; Methylobacterium. Aerobic, facultatively methylotrophic, legume root-nodule-forming and nitrogen-fixing bacteria
Pstu Providencia stuartii Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; Enterobacteriales; Enterobacteriaceae Gram negative bacterium that is commonly found in soil, water, and sewage. It is an opportunistic pathogen seen in patients with severe burns or long-term indwelling urinary catheters. In animals P. stuartii infections can cause neonatal diarrhea due to P stuartii infection in dairy cows.
Zeta_Hche Hahella chejuensis Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; Oceanospirillales; Hahellaceae; Hahella Marine bacteria that produces an algicidal agent (capable of killing phytoplankton, marine eukaryotic microalgae). Suggested as useful for managing algal blooms.
Vshi Vibrio shilonii Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; Vibrionales; Vibrionaceae; Vibrio Vibrio shilonii was isolated from the coral Oculina patagonica in the Mediterranean Sea. This organism cause bleaching (loss of the coral endosymbiotic zooxanthellae). This disease only occurs at elevated seawater temperatures.
Scel Sorangium cellulosum Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Deltaproteobacteria; Myxococcales; Sorangiineae; Polyangiaceae; Sorangium Soil-dwelling Gram-negative bacteria of the group myxobacteria. It plays an important role in soil ecology by its ability to degrade cellulosic materials.
Mxan Myxococcus xanthus Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Deltaproteobacteria; Myxococcales; Cystobacterineae; Myxococcaceae; Myxococcus Found almost ubiquitously in soil, consists of thin rod shaped, gram-negative cells that exhibit self-organizing behavior as a response to environmental cues. Starving bacteria can self-organize to form dome shaped structures (swarms) of approximately 100,000 cells that, over the course of several days, differentiate into metabolically quiescent and environmentally resistant myxospores.
