The capacity of different soils of New Caledonia to induce nodulation in Gyiiinostoina poissoiziaizuiiz was studied. The soils were sampled under five Gyniizostonza species, Alplzitoiiia neocaledonica (a non-nodulated endemic Rhamnaceae) and Piizus cat-ibea (an introduced species) growing in various ecological conditions. Using G. poissonianu& as trap-host, we observed a higher abundance of Fraizkia from Gymnostoma spp. in the rhizosphere of A. iieocaledonica as compared with bare soils and l… Expand
Effect of Pinus ponderosa afforestation on soilborne Frankia and saprophytic Actinobacteria in Northwest Patagonia, Argentina
TLDR
The study highlights the importance of soils as source of Frankia and rhizospheric actinobacteria in relation to disturbance caused by pine plantation in natural environments with native actinorhizal plant species. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Myricaceae: a reexamination of host-symbiont specificity.
TLDR
It appears that the Myricaceae are split into two different specificity groups which can be hypothesized that the early divergence of the genera led to the selection of genetically diverse Frankia strains which is contradictory to the earlier proposal that evolution has proceeded toward narrower promiscuity within the family. Expand
Distribution and abundance of infective, soilborne Frankia and host symbionts Shepherdia, Alnus, and Myrica in a sand dune ecosystem
TLDR
Infective Frankia were present in soils of young dunes prior to the establishment of any actinorhizal host-plant species, and distributed among 120 sampling locations representing a gradient of successional stages in a sand dune system along Lake Michigan. Expand
Are Northwestern Patagonian “mallín” wetland meadows reservoirs of Ochetophila trinervis infective Frankia?
TLDR
Frankia nodulation units per cm3 of soil (NU) in mallín soils were higher than those in steppe, which may account for the saprotrophic growth of Frankia in soils. Expand
Ecology Of Actinorhizal Plants
TLDR
The actinorhizal plants that are nodulated by the symbiotic, N2-fixing actinomycete Frankia include 25 genera in 8 families of angiospermous plants and, in this chapter, only the symbiosis-related ecological features will be discussed. Expand
Occurrence, structure, and nitrogen-fixation of root nodules of actinorhizal Arizona alder
Actinorhizal plants are nodulated by the symbiotic, nitrogen-fixing actinomycete Frankia. The genus Alnus in the family Betulaceae is one of the 24 genera in 8 families of angiospermous plants thatExpand
Root-based N2-fixing Symbioses: Legumes, Actinorhizal Plants, Parasponia sp. and Cycads
In the mutualistic symbioses between legumes and rhizobia, actinorhizal plants and Frankia, Parasponia sp. and rhizobia, and cycads and cyanobacteria, the N2-fixing microsymbionts exist inExpand
Root-based N2-fixing symbioses: Legumes, actinorhizal plants, Parasponia sp. and cycads
In the mutualistic symbioses between legumes and rhizobia, actinorhizal plants and Frankia, Parasponia sp. and rhizobia, and cycads and cyanobacteria, the N2-fixing microsymbionts exist inExpand
Root-based N2-fixing symbioses: Legumes, actinorhizal plants, Parasponia sp. and cycads
TLDR
In this review, phylogenetic and ecological aspects of the four symbioses are first addressed, and then the symbiosis can be admired for the elegant means by which the host plant and microsymbiont integrate to form the mutualistic relationships so important to the functioning of the biosphere.

Frankia and Actinorhizal Plants: Symbiotic Nitrogen Fixation
TLDR
Structural and developmental features of actinorhizal symbioses are described, which are likely to hold the key to understanding the common principles underlying the evolution of an intracellular plant-bacterial symbiosis. Expand

Distribution of Gymnostoma spp. microsymbiotic Frankia strains in New Caledonia is related to soil type and to host‐plant species
TLDR
A correspondence analysis nevertheless showed that the distribution of these patterns was related to soil type and to host‐plant species, and several Frankia strains were exclusively associated with the ultramafic soils. Expand
Occurrence of both Casuarina-infective and Elaeagnus-infective Frankia strains within actinorhizae of Casuarina collina, endemic to New Caledonia
TLDR
The hypothesis that the Frankia from Gyi~znostonia could use C. collina as an alternative host in absence of Gymnostoma spp. Expand
Isolation, characterisation (PCR-RFLP) and specificity of Frankia from eight Gymnostoma species endemic to New Caledonia
TLDR
Eight Frankia-Gymnostoma nitrogen-fixing symbioses endemic to New Caledonia were studied using a range of techniques including molecular typing of Frankia, infectivity/effectivity and host spectrum of the isolates, finding that they could represent a primitive group ofFrankia able to survive in a wide range of habitats. Expand
Frankia in acid soils of forests devoid of actinorhizal plants
TLDR
The highest nodulation capacities on Alnus, caused predominantly by Frankia of the Sp− type, were observed in mineral soil sites with Betula stands — even higher than in soil from an A. incana stand. Expand
Biology of Frankia strains, actinomycete symbionts of actinorhizal plants.
TLDR
Sufficient information about the relationship of Frankia strains to other bacteria, and to each other, is now available to warrant the creation of some species based on phenotypic and genetic criteria. Expand
Evidence that some Frankia sp. strains are able to cross boundaries between Alnus and Elaeagnus host specificity groups
Phenotypic and genotypic methods were used to prove the existence of Frankia strains isolated from an Elaeagnus sp. that are able to cross the inoculation barriers and infect Alnus spp. also.Expand
The nodular microsymbionts of Gymnostoma spp. are Elaeagnus-infective Frankia strains
TLDR
Results of both phenotypic and genotypic approaches indicate that Gymnostoma-infective strains are Elaeagnus infective and not Casuarina infective. Expand
Distribution of Frankia in soils from forest and afforestation sites in northern Sweden
TLDR
Investigation of the presence in soil of Frankia found it to be infective and effective, capable of forming nitrogen-fixing root nodules on Alnus incana (L.) Moench, irrespective of pH and nitrogen content of the soils. Expand
