Hallo,

most likely a very simple question for the experts here, but what is Bergeys ? And I then mean: what is the difference between Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology
2nd Edition and Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology
9th Edition

Is the systematic book a book with all the names and info on the specific bacteria? And the determinative book a book on how the determine what bacteria it is or?

thanks.

Systematic information will continue to be found in Bergey's Manual Of Systematic Bacteriology, with the Determinative manual serving as a reference to aid in the identification of unknown bacteria. [Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology] is intended solely for the identification of those bacteria that have been described and cultured.


From here.


The arrangement of [Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology] is strictly phenotypic, with no attempt to offer a natural higher classification. The arrangement chosen is utilitarian and is intended to aid in the identification of bacteria. The bacteria are divided into 35 groups, which are comparable to the “Parts” in the eighth edition and the “Sections” in the Systematic volumes. These groups are not meant to be formal taxonomic ranks, but are a continuation of our tradition of dividing the bacteria into easily recognized phenotypic groups. We feel this arrangement is most useful for diagnostic purposes.

[Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology] was compiled by abstracting the phenotypic information contained in the four volumes of Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology. Introductory material concerning identification and a key to the groups were added. The past decade has seen an explosion in the description of new taxa of bacteria. We have attempted to include as many of them as possible, but, in a manual of this type with its varied production schedule, not all of the new taxa could be included. For inclusion in this manual, we had to set a cut-off date of January, 1991, for valid publication. In some cases, we have been able to include more recent taxa and have taken their descriptions directly from the original publications.
