Bordetella is a genus of proteobacteria. The genus Bordetella contains species of related bacteria with similar morphology, size and staining reactions. To date there are 9 species known of Bordetella: B. pertussis, B. parapertussis, B. bronchiseptica, B. avium (formerly designated Alcaligenes faecalis), B. hinzii (formerly designated A. faecalis type II), B. holmesii, B. trematum, B. petrii and B. ansorpii. Members of the species B. pertussis and occasionally B. parapertussis cause pertussis or whooping cough in humans. Several other species cause similar disease in other mammals, such as B. bronchiseptica, and in birds, such as B. avium and B. hinzii.
