The recognition that bacteria cause diseases in plants was rela­ tively slow in establishing itself. That fungi were the causal agents in many instances had been accepted by botanists in the middle of the nineteenth century, and the next step, that of demonstrating the phytopathogenic nature of certain bacteria would normally seem to follow. It was not, however, until 1900 that all skepticism and even open ridicule of the few investigators in the field vanished and the work of the eighties and… 
THE METABOLISM OF PHYTOPATHOGENIC BACTERIA I
TLDR
The results presented herein concern the oxidation of different substrates by intact cells and cell-free preparations of various species of phytopathogenic bacteria.
Survival Mechanisms of Phytopathogenic Bacteria
TLDR
The longevity of primary inoculum is important in the success of bacterial patho­ gens and depends upon its ability to escape or endure adverse environmental condi­ tions (62).
THE ANTIBIOTIC ACTIVITY OF SOIL MICROORGANISMS AS RELATED TO BACTERIAL PLANT PATHOGENS
TLDR
It was found that there are present among the soil flora a great abundance of microorganisms intrinsically capable of antagonizing most of the bacterial pathogens tested and only for a few species are such antagonists relatively rare.
Bacterial Diseases of Crops: Epidemiology, Symptoms and Management
TLDR
Most of plant pathogenic bacteria are rod shaped; the only exceptions are those belonging to genus Streptomyces which are filamentous, and bacteria flagellated at various places on cell.
Bacterial pathogens in plants
TLDR
Bacteria that belong to either biotrophs or hemibiotrophs class of pathogens, interact with host plants through specialized genes and mechanisms to infect or colonize plants to adopt necrotrophic life style.
Endophytic Bacteria in Banana In Vitro Cultures: Molecular Identification, Antibiotic Susceptibility, and Plant Survival
TLDR
The identification and control of bacterial contaminants in banana in vitro cultures are reported on and contribute to minimizing the losses in the commercial micropropagation of banana.
Plant and Pathogens: Pathogen Recognision, Invasion and Plant Defense Mechanism
TLDR
The ability of plants to respond to challenge by potential pathogens implies that plants recognise these potential pathogens as 'non-self', which indicates that plants defend themselves against pathogens by a combination of weapons termed as host resistsnce.
Pantoea spp : a new bacterial threat to rice production in sub-Saharan Africa
TLDR
The results showed that bacteria capable of producing bacterial blight symptoms of rice in Africa form a species complex composed mainly of P. ananatis, P. stewartii and P. agglomerans.
Identification of Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola as the causal agent of halo blight in yellow beans in northern Sinaloa, Mexico
TLDR
It is suggested that the current differential set of genotypes requires the inclusion of novel bean genotypes, in order to explore the existence of potential new races of this pathogen.
The Genus Xanthomonas
The first reported observation of a phytopathogenic bacterium that nowadays would be referred to the genus Xanthomonas was made in 1881 by Wakker (1883), in the case of the yellows disease of
