Phylogenetic tree inferred from 16S rDNA gene sequence comparison showing the relationships of DSM 24701 with type species of the family Alcaligenaceae . Type strains of species from the genera Advenella and Taylorella were also included and the sequence of Zoogloea ramigera IAM 12136 was used as an outgroup. The tree was constructed by using the neighbour-joining method. Bootstrap values greater than 50% based on 1000 replications are indicated at branching nodes. Bar, 0.01 substitution per nucleotide position.
