AbstractHerein the members of the Subcommittee on Taxonomy of Rhizobia and Agrobacteria of the International Committee onSystematics of Prokaryotes review recent developments in rhizobial and agrobacterial taxonomy and propose updatedminimal standards for the description of new species (and genera) in these groups. The essential requirements (minimalstandards) for description of a new species are (1) a genome sequence of at least the proposed type strain and (2) evidencefor differentiation from other species based on genome sequence comparisons. It is also recommended that (3) geneticvariation within the species is documented with sequence data from several clearly different strains and (4) phenotypicfeatures are described, and their variation documented with data from a relevant set of representative strains. Furthermore,it is encouraged that information is provided on (5) nodulation or pathogenicity phenotypes, as appropriate, with relevantgene sequences. These guidelines supplement the current rules of general bacterial taxonomy, which require (6) a namethat conforms to the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes, (7) validation of the name by publication eitherdirectly in theInternational Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiologyor in a validation list when publishedelsewhere, and (8) deposition of the type strain in two international culture collections in separate countries
