A polyphasic taxonomic study that included DNA-rRNA hybridizations, DNA-DNA hybridizations, DNA base ratio determinations, whole-cell protein and fatty acid analyses, and an examination of classical phenotypic characteristics was performed in order to classify human and veterinary isolates that resemble Bordetella avium. Twelve poultry isolates and two human isolates were assigned to a new species, for which we propose the name Bordetella hinzii. The position of this organism in the family Alcaligenaceae and various genotypic, phenotypic, and chemotaxonomic characteristics are described.
