The diversity of bacteria and archaea associating on the surface and interior of maize roots (Zea mays L.) was investigated. A bacterial 16S rDNA primer was designed to amplify bacterial sequences directly from maize roots by PCR to the exclusion of eukaryotic and chloroplast DNA. The mitochondrial sequence from maize was easily separated from the PCR-amplified bacterial sequences by size fractionation. The culturable component of the bacterial community was also assessed, reflecting a… 
Endophytic Bacterial Diversity in Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Roots Estimated by 16S rDNA Sequence Analysis
This is the first report that archaea has been identified as endophytes associated with rice by the culture-independent approach, and the results suggest that the diversity of endophytic bacteria is abundant in rice roots.
Bacterial endophytes of the wildflower Crocus albiflorus analyzed by characterization of isolates and by a cultivation-independent approach.
The results suggest that Crocus supports a diverse bacterial microflora resembling the microbial communities that have been described for other plants and containing species that have not been described in association with plants.
Analysis of the Bacterial Diversity Associated with theRoots of Maize (Zeamays L.) through Culture-Dependent and Culture-Independent Methods
The spectrum of bacteria naturally associated with maize roots is wide and the magnitude of such diversity will depend on the methods chosen for analysis, the knowledge of this spectrum will facilitate the search of microorganisms capable of exerting antagonism to diverse pathogens or detecting plant growth enhancers.
Endophytic bacteria in plant tissue culture: differences between easy- and difficult-to-propagate Prunus avium genotypes.
The bacterial genera, which were previously reported to have plant growth-promoting effects, were detected only in genotypes with high propagation success, indicating a possible positive impact of these bacteria on in vitro propagation of P. avium, which was proven in an inoculation experiment.
Diversity of endophytic bacterial communities in poplar grown under field conditions.
The results showed that the genetic background of the hybrid poplar clones corresponded well with the endophytic community structure, and the community structure displayed clear differences in terms of the presence and relative proportions of bacterial taxa between the fourpoplar clones studied.
First insight into the genome of an uncultivated crenarchaeote from soil.
Content and structure of the genomic fragment indicated that the archaea from soil differ significantly from their previously studied uncultivated marine relatives, and the protein encoding genes gave the first insights into the physiological potential of these organisms.
Prokaryotic diversity in continuous cropping and rotational cropping soybean soil.
The phylotype richness, frequency distribution, and composition of the two clone libraries were investigated using a variety of diversity indices and LIBSHUFF comparisons and concluded that the group variance was not determined immediately by the cropping system's induction, but was a long-term and slow process.
Diversity and abundance of Bacteria and Archaea in the Bor Khlueng Hot Spring in Thailand
The findings of the molecular survey of this so far not investigated site showed that Bor Khlueng hot spring is a potential rich source of unique bacterial and archaeal species.
Maize Endophytic Bacterial Diversity as Affected by Soil Cultivation History
The results suggest that cultivation history is an important driver of endophytic colonization of maize and that after a long time of cultivation of the soil the maize plants need to increase the richness of the bacterial endophytes communities.
Molecular Interactions of Endophytic Actinobacteria in Wheat and Arabidopsis
The endophytic actinobacterial population in the roots of wheat grown in three different soils obtained from the southeast part of South Australia was investigated by terminal restriction fragment


Molecular microbial diversity of an agricultural soil in Wisconsin
A culture-independent survey of the soil microbial diversity in a clover-grass pasture in southern Wisconsin was conducted by sequence analysis of a universal clone library of genes coding for small-subunit rRNA (rDNA), finding the enormous microbial diversity found in this soil in two ways, as phylogenetic trees and as multidimensional-scaling plots.
Novel Euryarchaeotal Lineages Detected on Rice Roots and in the Anoxic Bulk Soil of Flooded Rice Microcosms
A novel euryarchaeotal main line of descent, designated rice cluster V, which was detected in anoxic rice paddy soil is described, indicating that there is an astonishing richness of archaeal diversity present on rice roots and in the surrounding paddy soils.
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of a soil microbial community in a soybean field
The phylogenetic characterization of small subunit rRNA gene sequences obtained by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of mixed population DNA extracted directly from soil in a soybean field without culturing the organisms suggests a global distribution of this archaeal group.
Phylogenetic diversity of a bacterial community determined from Siberian tundra soil DNA.
Most of the tundra soil bacterial community has never been isolated and thus the physiology and function of its dominant members appears to be unknown, suggesting that many probably reflect new genera or families.
Molecular microbial diversity in soils from eastern Amazonia: evidence for unusual microorganisms and microbial population shifts associated with deforestation
This report represents the first description of the microbial diversity in Amazonian soils involving a culture-independent approach and rRNA intergenic spacer analysis was used to show significant microbial population differences between a mature forest soil and an adjacent pasture soil.
Levels of Bacterial Community Diversity in Four Arid Soils Compared by Cultivation and 16S rRNA Gene Cloning
Levels of bacterial community diversity in two pinyon rhizosphere soil samples and two between-tree (interspace) soil samples are compared by analyzing 179 cultivated bacterial isolates and 801 16S rRNA genes amplified from extracted soil DNA.
Molecular phylogeny of Archaea from soil.
A cluster of Archaea from a soil microbial community that diverge deeply from the crenarchaeotal line of descent and has the closest affiliation to the lineage of planktonic Archaea is identified.
Molecular Analysis of Bacterial Community Structure and Diversity in Unimproved and Improved Upland Grass Pastures
Diversity was high, reflecting the low coverage of rDNA libraries achieved, and differences in diversity between sample types were not observed; Collector’s curves, however, indicated that there were differences in the underlying community structures.
