Brucella suis (LPSN link)
According to the Subcommittee on the taxonomy of Brucella [Gargani and Lopez-Merino (2006), Corbel and Moriyon (2006)], the nomenclature proposed by the Manchester meeting [ICSB Subcommittee on the Taxonomy of Brucella (1988)] has not found widespread support. During its meeting, 17 September 2003, Pamplona, Spain [Osterman and Moriyon (2006)], the Subcommittee on the taxonomy of Brucella agreed unanimously upon a proposal by B. Osterman on a return to pre-1986 taxonomic opinion on the genus Brucella, without any objections or reservations. The fact to recognize a monospecific genus [i.e. Brucella melitensis (Hughes 1893) Meyer and Shaw 1920 (Approved Lists 1980) emend. Verger et al. 1985] or a multispecific genus (i.e. the six species cited in the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names) is a matter of taxonomic opinion. Consequently, according to his/her scientific opinion, a bacteriologist may use the one species concept or the six species concept.
