Table 5 Natural habitats of shared bacterial taxa identified by pairwise comparisons

From: Metagenomic analyses of bacteria on human hairs: a qualitative assessment for applications in forensic science

Shared bacterial taxa Habitat
Aggregibacter segnis (Pasteurellaceae) Normal human oral flora [51]
Anaerococcus spp. (Tissierella nov.fam.) Commensal human flora, opportunistic pathogens also environmental [46],[47]
Betaproteobacteria High order taxon (Class). Members largely environmental, also include human pathogens and commensals [60]
Bifidobacterium spp. (Bifidobacteriaceae) Normal intestinal flora [39]
Corynebacterium × 1 spp. (Corynebacteriaceae) Key members associated as part of skin flora [39]
Dialister spp. (Veillonaceae) Implicated in oral cavity diseases [39]
Dietziaceae Environmental and implications as an emerging human pathogen [48]
Knoellia subterranea (Intrasporangiaceae) Environmental [61]
Lactobacillus iners and Lactobacillus spp. ×6 (Lactobacillaceae) Part of a suite of lactobacilli that inhabit human female genital-urinary area [40]
Mycoplana spp. (Caulobacteraceae) Environmental [62]
Neisseriaceae Members may be human commensals (of the mouth) or pathogenic [39]
Paracoccus (Rhodobacteriaceae) Environmental [49]
Peptinophilus spp. (Tissierella fam.nov.) Pathogenic [47]
Prevotella spp. (Prevotellaceae) Oral, vaginal and GIT commensals [39]
Xanthomonadaceae Plant pathogen (opportunistic human pathogen) [59]
