The colonization of leaves of the aquatic macrophyteCeratophyllum demersum L. by epiphytic bacteria, and the hypothesis that bacterial invasion causes leaf senescence, was studied using transmission and scanning electron microscopy and light microscopy. Population densities of epiphytic bacterial communities onCeratophyllum leaves were positively correlated with leaf age. Initial settlement of bacteria on young leaves appeared to favour the boundaries between epidermal cells. On older leaves… CONTINUE READING
