By Bernard R. Glick

This monograph presents an summary of invaluable plant-bacterial interactions in a simple and easy-to-understand structure, and features a wealth of designated illustrations elaborating each significant aspect. learn questions that emphasize the main issues are supplied on the finish of every chapter.

One solution to feed all the humans within the world’s transforming into inhabitants is thru the elevated use of plant-growth-promoting micro organism in agriculture. those micro organism not just at once advertise development but in addition safeguard crops opposed to quite a lot of biotic and abiotic stresses. additionally, they are often used to aid approaches for biologically cleansing up the surroundings. Plant-growth-promoting micro organism are already getting used effectively on a small scale in numerous international locations, and as this know-how matures, the area could witness an incredible paradigm shift in agricultural practice.

Example text

In addition to small amounts of a number of different metals, plants and bacteria require fixed nitrogen, iron, and phosphorus. In this chapter, the mechanisms and genes involved in PGPB and plant resource acquisition are discussed in some detail. In fact, one of the major benefits that PGPB provide to their plant partners is that they facilitate the plant’s acquisition of resources from the soil. 1 Nitrogen Fixation One of the major nutrients necessary for the growth of all living organisms including plants and bacteria is nitrogen.

1 Nitrogen Fixation 41 inoculated with either non-transformed or bacterial hemoglobin-containing R. etli, the plants inoculated with the hemoglobin-containing strain had approximately 68 % more nitrogenase activity. This difference in nitrogenase activity led to a 25–30 % increase in leaf nitrogen content and a 16 % increase in the nitrogen content of the seeds that are produced. It remains to be seen whether this genetically modified strain is as effective in the field as in the greenhouse and whether the regulatory authorities will approve its use in the field.

Of course, the first time that genes involved in nitrogen fixation (nif genes) were isolated, and it was not possible to use previously isolated nif genes as DNA hybridization probes. Consequently at that time, the most direct way to isolate nif genes was to identify and characterize those clones of a wild-type library that restore nitrogen fixation to various mutants that were unable to fix nitrogen of the original organism. This process is called gene cloning by genetic complementation. 7 Schematic representation of some of the key reactions in nitrogen fixation.
