  1. Note: The number of bacteria is provided for each habitat in each group. The percentage of bacterial species in each category is given in parentheses. 13 bacteria have no available habitat information and eight bacterial habitats in other unlisted hosts are not included (two in avians, two in bivalves, one in earthworms, one in nematodes and two in Pisces).
