Suppl. Figure S1. Unrooted 16S rRNA gene sequence Maximum likelihood phylogenetic trees of the haloalkaliphilic isolates, possibly representing novel taxa, and its nearest relatives. All positions with less than 95 % site coverage were eliminated. There were a total of 1338 (A), 1394 (B), 1442 (C), 1373 (D) and 1103 (E) positions in the final datasets. The tree is drawn to scale, with branch lengths measured in the number of substitutions per site with corrections, associated with the model. Bootstrap values as percentages of 1000 repetitions are shown next to the branches. Type strains of validly published species are underlined. Genbank numbers are indicated at the beginning of each sequence designation.
