Leaves of higher plants comprise perhaps the largest bacterial substrate on earth, yet we know very little about the bacteria that occupy these spaces. In this review, we first examine the ecology and behavior of bacteria that reside on leaf surfaces. Next, we discuss the ecological implications of foliar bacteria that reside in interior portions of leaf tissues. Later, we consider the studies on foliar bacteria in tropical habitats to date. Finally, we examine evidence regarding the potential… CONTINUE READING
