Genus Burkholderia
Gram-negative, nonfermentative, straight rods with a single
polar flagellum or a tuft of polar flagella (with the exception of
B. mallei, which  is atrichous). Catalase  produced,  oxidase is
variable. Most species grow at 40°C. All can utilize glucose,
glycerol, inositol, galactose, sorbitol & mannitol.
Pseudomonas-related species
Taxonomic changes
(some species are not included in ABIS)

According to Anzai, Kudo & Oyaizu
(1997), the names  Chryseomonas &
Flavimonas are junior subjective
synonyms of Pseudomonas.

According to Youg and Park 2007,
Azotobacter  is a probable late synonym
of Pseudomonas.
