Bacteroidales

The class Bacteroidia is composed of a single order of environmental bacteria. By far, the Bacteroidales order are the most well-studied of the Bacteroidetes. Some members of the genus Bacteroides are opportunistic pathogens.[1] Before the fourth volume of Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology came out, it was referred to as class Bacteroidetes.[2]
