Burkholderia mimosarum sp. nov., isolated from root nodules of Mimosa spp. from Taiwan and South America.
Fourteen strains were isolated from nitrogen-fixing nodules on the roots of plants of the genus Mimosa growing in Taiwan, Brazil and Venezuela. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities,Expand
