Taxonomy/phylogeny:
 
About 200 species have been described within genus Pseudomonas. Many of these species can be isolated from the environment and some of them are pathogenic. They are related to members within genus Moraxella and Acinetobacter. Many earlier described species within genus Pseudomonas have been transferred genus Burkholderia.
