The presence and taxonomy of endophytic bacteria of the entire aerial parts of crocus (Crocus albiflorus), a wildflower native in the Alps, were investigated. A combination of plating of plant macerates, isolation and sequence identification of isolates, and direct 16S rDNA PCR amplification followed by whole-community fingerprinting (T-RFLP) and by construction of a bacterial clone library was used. The results clearly indicated that a wide range of bacteria from diverse phylogenetic… CONTINUE READING
