Growth of an invasive legume is symbiont limited in newly occupied habitats
Mutualisms may play an important role in the establishment and invasion success of introduced species, but their influence is little studied. To test whether a lack of root nodule symbionts may limit
Genetic Diversity of the Edible Mushroom Pleurotus sp. by Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism
The results of the present study suggest the possible applicability of the AFLP-PstI method in effective identification and molecular characterization of Pleurotus sp.
Phylogeny of nodulation genes and symbiotic properties of Genista tinctoria bradyrhizobia
Genista tinctoria nodulators formed symbioses not only with the native host, but also with other plants of Genisteae tribe such as: Lupinus luteus, Sarothamnus scoparius, and Chamaecytisus ratisbonensis, and they were classified as the genistoid cross-inoculation group.
Disparate origins of Bradyrhizobium symbionts for invasive populations of Cytisus scoparius (Leguminosae) in North America.
Bayesian phylogenetic analysis showed that North American C. scoparius symbionts had highly heterogeneous ancestry, and it appears that bacteria ancestrally associated with other North American legumes have evolved to utilize C.Scoparius by acquiring SI-region genes from European C. Scoparius.
The root-nodule symbiosis between Sarothamnus scoparius L. and its microsymbionts
The results of cross-inoculation tests have shown a broad host range for S. scoparius microsymbionts including not only the native host but also species such as: Lupinus luteus, Ornithopus sativa, Lotus corniculatus, Genista tinctoria, Chamaecitisus ratisbonensis, Macroptilium atropurpureum, and Phaseolus vulgaris.
Numerical Taxonomy of Sarothamnus scoparius Rhizobia
The membership of S. scoparius rhizobia in the Bradyrhizobium genus was supported by their long generation time, alkaline reaction in YEM medium with mannitol, lack of plasmids, and wide host plant range.
Robinia pseudoacacia in Poland and Japan is nodulated by Mesorhizobium amorphae strains
Results showed that R. pseudoacacia and M. amorphae belong to the same genomospecies, and their DNA patterns were identical or nearly identical to Mesorhizobium genus strains.
Genetic differentiation of Trifolium repens microsymbionts deriving from Zn–Pb waste‐heap and control area in Poland
The aim of this work was to determine the genetic structure of Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii population isolated from root nodules of Trifolium repens growing in heavy metal contaminated
