Genetic diversity of diazotrophs and total bacteria in the phyllosphere of Pyrus serotina, Prunus armeniaca, Prunus avium, and Vitis vinifera.
Light is shed on the microbial communities of the phyllosphere that are important for plant growth and the existence of specific interactions between these functional microorganism and plants, which may provide information or be a reference for the development of bacterial fertilizers. Expand
