Note Current status of the taxonomy of bacteria able to establish nitrogen-fixing legume symbiosis -- Recent advances in the active biomolecules involved in rhizobia-legume symbiosis -- Flavonoids and Nod Factors: Importance in legume-microbe interactions and legume improvement -- Role of Ethylene and Bacterial ACC-deaminase in Nodulation of Legumes -- Rhizobial Exopolysaccharides: A Novel Biopolymer for Legume- Rhizobia Symbiosis and Environmental Monitoring -- Rhizobial diversity for tropical pulses, and forage and tree legumes in Brazil -- Potential of Rhizobia as Plant-Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria -- Role of Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria in Legume Improvement -- Mycorrhizosphere Interactions to Improve a Sustainable Production of Legumes -- Legume Response to Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi Inoculation in Sustainable Agriculture -- Inoculation Effects of Associative Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria on the Performance of Legumes -- Perspectives of using Endophytic Microbes for Legumes Improvement -- Legumes-Microbes Interactions under Stressed Environments -- Rhizobial Amelioration of Drought Stress in Legumes -- Metal-Legume-Microbes Interactions: Toxicity and Remediation -- Non-Symbiotic and Symbiotic Bacteria Efficiency for Legume Growth under different Stress Conditions
This book presents in-depth insights into strategies involving plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR), including symbiotic/asymbiotic nitrogen fixers and associative/endophyte bacteria, phosphate-solubilizing microbes, as well as arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and their active biomolecules in legume production. It also examines the latest research findings on the taxonomic status of rhizobia and signal molecules affecting rhizobia-legume symbiosis to improve readers' understanding of the cultivation of legumes in conventional and derelict soil. The agronomically important microflora broadly discussed have offered solutions to some of the problems associated with expensive fertilizers used in many production systems. This second edition provides an overview of metal toxicity to legumes and presents strategies for the abatement of metal toxicity to legumes. Aimed at professionals, practitioners, researchers and graduate students in microbiology, crop sciences, soil microbiology, biotechnology and environmental microbiology, the book focuses on the basic concepts and practical aspects of useful soil microbiota in legume production
