Corynebacterium. This genus comprises about 50 species of a phenotypically diverse group of bacteria. Some of them (30) are animal and plant pathogens, while other are saprophytes (feeding on dead organics). They may be found as members of the normal microflora of humans, where these bacteria find a suitable niche in virtually every anatomic More...
