Cyanobacterial diversity in the rhizosphere of rice and its ecological significance

Abstract

This investigation was undertaken to characterize the abundance and genera-wise diversity of cyanobacteria in the rice rhizosphere and nitrogen-fixing ability of the isolated strains. The cyanobacterial strains belonging to the genera Nostoc and Anabaena comprised 80% of the rhizosphere isolates, which were also efficient in enhancing the germination and… (More)
