The diversity of 89 pectolytic enterobacteria collected from potatoes in New Zealand was investigated by comparing their physiological, biochemical and genetic characteristics with those of type strains of Pectobacterium and strains previously identified as isolates of the genus Dickeya. Biochemical and physiological analyses demonstrated that the predominant pectolytic enterobacterium present in New Zealand is Pectobacterium carotovorum subspecies carotovorum. Isolates of Pectobacterium… CONTINUE READING
