This review summarizes molecular studies on the taxonomy of the genus Chlorobium. Furthermore, we try to introduce a comprehensive view of how joining traditional phenotypic-based taxonomy with the current molecular approaches leads to a more natural classification. Moreover, we introduce the current insights that molecular techniques have brought to the detection and identification of nonisolated Chlorobium strains in their environments.
