Example text

With no understanding of phylogenetic relationships, there can be no effective study of ecology or diversity. Ecological niches cannot be defined in organismal terms, and studies in bacterial diversity amount to no more than a catalog of disconnected vignettes. It is inconceivable that a zoologist or botanist could go into the field and not be able to distinguish the animals from the plants. Yet would-be microbial ecologists were in this exact position or worse all the time: they couldn’t distinguish their “animals” from their “plants” or (with a few exceptions) from representatives of any others of the many kingdomlevel bacterial taxa.

Because zoological and botanical classifications are morphologically based, a strong precedent existed for putting bacterial classification on a similar footing—despite the fact that microbiologists intuitively knew that bacteria are as fundamentally physiological as animals and plants are morphological. On what levels, to what extent, in what ways, then, are the morphological and various physiological properties of bacteria taxonomically significant? In the following, we see Kluyver and van Niel worry the problem (Kluyver and van Niel, 1936, pp.
