Microbial Root Endophytes (Soil Biology) by Barbara J.E. Schulz, Christine J.C. Boyle, Thomas N. Sieber

By Barbara J.E. Schulz, Christine J.C. Boyle, Thomas N. Sieber

This is the 1st ebook devoted to the interactions of non-mycorrhizal microbial endophytes with plant roots. The phenotypes of those interactions might be super plastic, reckoning on environmental components, dietary prestige, genetic disposition and developmental levels of the 2 companions. This publication explores range, existence background options, interactions, purposes in agriculture and forestry, equipment for isolation, cultivation, and either traditional and molecular tools for id and detection of those endophytes.

For potatoes, Krechel et al. (2002) observed the highest bacterial diversity at flowering. During that period the plant undergoes massive physiological changes that probably increase nutrient availability and thus bacterial diversity. Other biotic and abiotic factors that influence bacterial diversity are discussed later in this chapter. There is little question, though, that a better understanding of the population dynamics of bacterial root endophytes will enhance our ability to take advantage of their beneficial potential to enhance plant growth and health.
