Intraspecific variation in Burkholderia caledonica: Europe vs. Africa and soil vs. endophytic isolates.


The best-known interaction between bacteria and plants is the Rhizobium-legume symbiosis, but other bacteria-plant interactions exist, such as between Burkholderia and Rubiaceae (coffee family).
