Previous studies on the ubiquity and diversity of microbial (per)chlorate
reduction resulted in the isolation of 20 new strains of dissimilatory
(per)chlorate-reducing bacteria. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that all of the
isolates were members of the Proteobacteria with representatives in the -,
- and -subclasses. The majority of the new isolates were located in the
