We investigated symbiotic and physiological properties, and taxonomic position, of 23 bacterial strains isolated from Lebeckia ambigua root nodules collected from the South African fynbos region. The capacity for nodulation and nitrogen fixation on three provenances of L. ambigua was investigated for these strains together with several physiological characters, including growth rate on peat and in betonite clay, survival on polyethylene beads and pH tolerance. Additionally, the 16S rRNA gene… CONTINUE READING
