Phylogeny of the Rhizobium-Allorhizobium-Agrobacterium clade supports the delineation of Neorhizobium gen. nov.
The genera Agrobacterium, Allorhizobium, and Rhizobium belong to the family Rhizobiaceae. However, the placement of a phytopathogenic group of bacteria, the genus Agrobacterium, among theExpand

Nitrogen‐fixing nodules from rose wood legume trees (Dalbergia spp.) endemic to Madagascar host seven different genera belonging to α‐ and β‐Proteobacteria
Although legume biodiversity is concentrated in tropical regions, the majority of studies on legume nodulating bacteria (LNB) are focused on cultivated leguminous plants from temperate regions.Expand
