ABSTRACT Mesorhizobium helmanticense is a novel species that was isolated from root nodules of Lotus corniculatus grown in an alfisol soil from Carbajosa de la Sagrada, a Mediterranean region in the province of Salamanca in northwest Spain. The whole-genome sequence of the type strain M. helmanticense CSLC115N is reported in this study.

Two rhizobial strains isolated from root nodules of Lotus tenuis grown in saline-alkaline lowlands soil from Argentina can be considered to represent a novel species of the genus Mesorhizobium, for which the name Mesoruanii sp.


The high diversity of Lotus corniculatus endosymbionts in soils of northwest Spain
Great phylogenetic diversity of strains nodulating L. corniculatus nodulating strains isolated in Europe, America and Asia is revealed, allowing us to predict that even more diversity will be discovered as further ecosystems are investigated.
Lotus-related species and their agronomic importance
This chapter illustrates how Lotus species are currently used to improve pastures for which other forage legume species are not suitable and touches on beneficial microorganism-plant interactions and the benefits of using Lotus species as animal fodder.
Mesorhizobium helmanticense sp. nov., isolated from Lotus corniculatus nodules.
The results of phenotypic characterization support that the L. corniculatus nodulating strains analysed in this work belong to a novel species of the genus Mesorhizobium, and the type strain is CSLC115NT (= LMG 29734T=CECT 9168T).
