About this book

Endophytic prokaryotes can invade the tissue of the host plant without triggering defense reactions or disease symptoms. Instead, they promote the growth of the host plant due to their ability to fix atmospheric dinitrogen and/or to produce plant growth-promoting substances.

This Microbiology Monographs volume presents up-to-date findings on the interactions between plants and beneficial prokaryotes, including the use of genomics for the analysis of plant-prokaryote symbioses and their evolution. Rhizobia-legume, actinorhizal and cyanobacterial symbioses are presented.

Aus den Rezensionen: "Die zwolf Kapitel dieses ... attraktiven Buches sind ... auf dem aktuellen Stand. ... Im Kapitel uber die Entwicklung der Actinorhiza-Organe stellt die Herausgeberin die Besonderheiten dieser symbiontischen Interaktion im Vergleich zu den durch Rhizobien induzierten Organen detailliert und ubersichtlich dar. ... Auch die Symbiosen mit Cyanobakterien sind mit vielen neuen Ergebnissen in den folgenden Kapiteln anschaulich dargestellt." (Dietrich Werner, in: BIOspektrum, February/2010, Vol. 16, Issue 1, S. 124)
