To survey the occurrence of nodulated legumes in the arid and semi-arid areas of Western Rajasthan and to characterize their associated symbiotic bacteria. Herbaceous annual species were excavated whole, while tree species were studied as seedlings in the field or as trap plants in pot experiments. Nodules were examined by microscopy to confirm their(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The large monophyletic genus Mimosa comprises approx. 500 species, most of which are native to the New World, with Central Brazil being the main centre of radiation. All Brazilian Mimosa spp. so far examined are nodulated by rhizobia in the betaproteobacterial genus Burkholderia. Approximately 10 Mya, transoceanic dispersal resulted in(More)
Accumulation of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) [P(3HB-co-3HV)] co-polymer by a local isolate, Brevibacillus invocatus MTCC 9039 under batch mode was investigated under glucose, acetate and propionate-supplemented conditions. Cells harvested at the stationary phase of growth depicted maximum accumulation of poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB), i.e. 3%(More)
To describe the structure of nodules of Vachellia (Acacia) jacquemontii, and to characterise the rhizobia that occupy them. Light and electron microscopy were used to analyse nodules. Rhizobia were characterised using their 16S rRNA, housekeeping and symbiosis-related gene sequences. Nodules of V. jacquemontii were typical of all other described mimosoid(More)
In present investigation, the phenotypic as well as genetic diversity of twenty root nodule bacterial strains isolated from root nodules of Crotalaria medicagenia growing in Thar Desert of India, were investigated. All bacterial isolates were fast growing and highly diverged in their phenotypic characteristics such as salt and pH tolerance. All isolates(More)
