Phosphate-solubilizing rhizobacteria enhance the growth and yield but not phosphorus uptake of canola (Brassica napus L.)
Abstract The ability of phosphate-solubilizing rhizobacteria to enhance the growth and phosphorus uptake of canola (Brassica napus L., cv. Legend) was studied in potted soil experiments in the growthExpand

Diversity of root-associated bacteria associated with field-grown canola (Brassica napus L.) and wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Little is known about the composition and diversity of the bacterial community associated with plant roots. The purpose of this study was to investigate the diversity of bacteria associated with theExpand

Bacteria associated with Glomus clarum spores influence mycorrhizal activity
Abstract The effects of bacteria associated with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal (AMF) spores on spore germination, growth in vitro and on the pea-AMF symbiosis were evaluated. Bacterial colonies wereExpand

Diversity of bacterial communities in the rhizosphere and root interior of field‐grown genetically modified Brassica napus
Plant roots significantly affect microbial diversity in soil, but little is known on how genetically modified plants influence soil microbial communities. We conducted a 2-year field study to assessExpand

Culture-based and culture-independent assessment of the impact of mixed and single plant treatments on rhizosphere microbial communities in hydrocarbon contaminated flare-pit soil
Abstract Phytoremediation is a novel treatment option for weathered, hydrocarbon contaminated, flare-pit soil in prairie ecosystems. The remediation potential of six different naturalized prairieExpand

Fungal and Bacterial Abundance in Long-Term No-Till and Intensive-Till Soils of the Northern Great Plains
Abundance of fungi and bacteria in long-term no-till (NT) and intensively tilled (IT) soils in the Northern Great Plains were measured using phospholipid fatty acid analysis (PLFA) to determine if aExpand

Mechanisms of phytoremediation: biochemical and ecological interactions between plants and bacteria
The use of plants to reduce contaminant levels in soil is a cost-effective method of reducing the risk to human and ecosystem health posed by contaminated soil sites. This review concentrates onExpand
