The biology and ecology of plant pathogenic bacteria have been studied almost exclusively in agricultural contexts. In contrast, for numerous human pathogens their biological activity in niches outside of medical contexts is well-known. Whereas there is increasing evidence that traits fostering survival in 'environmental' niches can be the basis for virulence factors of human pathogens, niches for plant pathogenic bacteria outside of plants or of agricultural settings have not been elucidated… CONTINUE READING
