Biodiversity studies of native soybean-nodulating rhizobia in soils from the Chinese Hubei province (Honghu county; pH 8, alluvial soil) have been carried out. Inoculation of an American (Williams) and an Asiatic (Peking) soybean cultivar with eleven soil samples led to the isolation of 167 rhizobia strains. The ratio (%) of slow-/fast-growing isolates was(More)
The effect of a variety factors on the survival of several rhizobia strains on inoculants and inoculated seeds has been evaluated. Since the rhizobia strains showed different cell-density-evolution patterns on peat-based inoculants and on inoculated seeds, several inoculant formulations with highly effective Rhizobium/Bradyrhizobium strains (for Lupinus,(More)
Arapaima gigas is an air-breathing giant fish of Amazonian rivers. Given its great economic and cultural importance, the aquaculture development of this species represents an evident solution to face the decline of wild populations. In captivity, reproduction occurs generally in large earthen ponds where stocks of a few tens of brooders are maintained(More)
Low-molecular-weight (LMW) RNA molecules were analyzed to characterize rhizobial isolates that nodulate the common bean growing in Spain. Since LMW RNA profiles, determined by staircase electrophoresis, varied across the rhizobial species nodulating beans, we demonstrated that bean isolates recovered from Spanish soils presumptively could be characterized(More)
AIMS In this study, 10 putative plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) were assayed for their ability to improve Pinus pinea growth and mycorrhization. METHODS AND RESULTS After an inoculation assay, except for two, all strains stimulated plant growth. All bacteria altered rhizosphere microbial communities as revealed by phospholipid fatty acid(More)
Growth and survival of Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. phaseoli, R. tropici, Bradyrhizobium japonicum and Bacillus megaterium in peat and perlite-based inoculants were evaluated. In general, survival was similar for all strains in both carriers. Better survival was observed when inoculants were maintained at 48C compared to 288C. Studies with two di€erent(More)
The strain Bacillus sp. CECT 450 increased nodulation on bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) when co-inoculated with Rhizobium tropici CIAT 899. This positive effect occured under controlled conditions on perlite-vermiculite, sand, or in a mixture of soil and sand. This increase was also observed in a field assay. Nodulation kinetic studies suggested that the(More)
Several isolates were obtained from sporocarps of Amanita caesarea (Scop.: Fr.) Pers. associated with Quercus suber and Castanea sativa coming from the southwest of Spain. Culture conditions were optimized for these isolates. The largest radial growth was obtained at pH 6–7, and optimal growth temperature was 24–28°C depending on the isolate. Albumin bovine(More)
Quantitative analyses of fast- and slow-growing soybean rhizobia populations in soils of four different provinces of China (Hubei, Shan Dong, Henan, and Xinjiang) have been carried out using the most probable number technique (MPN). All soils contained fast- (FSR) and slow-growing (SSR) soybean rhizobia. Asiatic and American soybean cultivars grown at acid,(More)
