    Eubacterium species are found in the mammalian intestinal tract and oral cavity, in addition to the environment. The genus Eubacterium was originally established to describe a group of fecal bacteria that were considered to be beneficial. However, some species might be considered to be opportunistic, even though no primary-disease-causing species of Eubacterium have been isolated and no specific virulence factors have been identified. Since this book covers human bacterial pathogens, only those Eubacterium species that have been found in humans are discussed in detail.
