Root-nodules formation byPenicillium sp. onAlnus glutinosa andAlnus incana
A non identified species ofPenicillium induced the formation of nodules on the root system of two species of alder (Alnus glutinosa and A.incana). These so-called myconodules looked like youngExpand

Preliminary characterization of an ineffective Frankia derived from a spontaneously neomycin-resistant strain
Five strains of Frankia isolated from actinorhizae of 3 alder species were cultivated with various concentrations of neomycin in the medium. For one strain, resistance to neomycin was associated withExpand

Study of the contribution of the shoot and/or root ofAlnus sp. in the compatibility between the host and a Sp+Frankia strain using a grafting technique
Two alder species,Alnus glutinosa (L.) Gaertn. andAlnus incana (L) Moench, were inoculated with a Sp+Frankia homogenate obtained fromA. incana root nodules. This inoculum formed effective nodules onExpand
