Novel strains of nodulating Burkholderia have a role in nitrogen fixation with papilionoid herbaceous legumes adapted to acid, infertile soils
We investigated the taxonomic position and symbiotic capabilities of two root-nodule bacterial strains isolated from the South African herbaceous, papilionoid legume Rhynchosia ferulifolia. The 16SExpand
