Frankia in the rhizosphere of nonhost plants: A comparison with root-associated N2-fixing Enterobacter, Klebsiella and Pseudomonas

Abstract

Bacterial growth in the rhizosphere and resulting changes in plant growth parameters were studied in small aseptic seedlings of birch (Betula pendula and B. pubescens) and grasses (Poa pratensis and Festuca rubra). The seedlings were inoculated with three Frankia strains (Ai1a and Ag5b isolated from native Alnus root nodules and Ai17 from a root nodule… (More)
