Neighbour joining tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showing the phylogenetic position of D. alkaliphilus AHT2T to other species within the Deltaproteobacteria class. The Firmicutes were used as an outgroup and subsequently pruned from the tree. The black dots indicate a bootstrap value between 80 and 100 %. The scale bar indicates a 1 % sequence difference. The tree was constructed with the ARB software package [37] and the SILVA database [19]. The bootstrap values were calculated using MEGA-6 [38]
