Description of Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology Volume 2 Part C


Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology 2nd Edition (pdf) Free Download. Written by James T. Staley, David R. Boone, Don J. Brenner, and et al. Tthe Editors is a long-standing tradition of Bergey’s Manual to open their respective editions with the observation that the new edition is a departure from the earlier ones. As this volume goes to press, however, we recognize a need to deviate from this practice, by offering a separate preface to each volume within Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology 2nd edition. In part, this departure is necessary because the size and complexity of Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology edition far exceeded our expectations, as has the amount of time that has elapsed between the publication of the first volume of Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology 2nd edition and Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology Volume 2.   


Systematic procaryotic biology is a dynamic field, driven by methodological advances and constant theoretical that will ultimately lead to a more useful and perfect classification scheme. Much of the increase can be attributed to rapid advances in sequencing technology, which has brought about a major shift in how we view the relationships between Bacteria and Archaea. While universally possibility for the applicable natural classification was evident as the First Edition was in preparation, it is only recently that the sequence databases became the taxonomic coverage and large enough broad enough to make such an arrangement feasible. 

We have relied heavily upon these data in organizing the contents of Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology 2nd edition of Bergey’s Manual of Systematic Bacteriology, which will follow a phylogenetic framework based on analysis of the nucleotide sequence of the small ribosomal subunit RNA, rather than a phenotypic structure. This departs from the 1st Edition, as well as the 8th and 9th Editions of the Determinative Manual. While the rationale for presenting the content of Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology 2nd edition in such a manner should be evident to most readers, they should bear in mind that Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology 2nd edition, as in all preceding ones represents a progress report, rather than a final classification of procaryotes.
