Findings suggest that beta-rhizobia evolved from diazotrophs through multiple lateral nod gene transfers, strongly supporting the hypothesis of the unique origin of common nod genes.
Legume-nodulating betaproteobacteria: diversity, host range, and future prospects.
Initial analyses of genome sequences have suggested that plant-associated Burkholderia spp.

The taxonomic status of five root nodule isolates from tropical legumes was determined using a polyphasic taxonomic approach and two isolates were identified as novel Burkholderia species for which it is proposed the names Burk holderia tuberum sp.

The predominance of Burkholderia in Taiwanese M. pigra suggests that this species may have brought its symbionts from its native South America, rather than entering into association with the Taiwanese Mimosa symbiont C. taiwanensis which so successfully nodulates Mimosa pudica and Mimosa diplotricha.
Metal biosorption capability of Cupriavidus taiwanensis and its effects on heavy metal removal by nodulated Mimosa pudica.
Nodulation of Cyclopia spp. (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae) by Burkholderia tuberum.
This work investigates whether Burkholderia tuberum strains STM678 and DUS833 can nodulate species of the South African endemic papilionoid genera Cyclopia (tribe Podalyrieae) and Aspalathus (Crotalarieae) as well as the promiscuous legume Macroptilium atropurpureum (Phaseoleae).
Proof that Burkholderia Strains Form Effective Symbioses with Legumes: a Study of Novel Mimosa-Nodulating Strains from South America
Both wild-type and green fluorescent protein-expressing transconjugant strains of Br3461 and MAP3-5 produced N2-fixing nodules on their original hosts, Mimosa bimucronata and Mimosa pigra, and hence this confirms strongly that Burkholderia strains can form effective symbioses with legumes.
