Abstract

The legume genus Lotononis, (from the Crotalarieae tribe in the Genistoid clade of the sub-family Fabaceae) is of mainly southern African origin, comprising some 150 species of herbs and small shrubs. Our work has shown that Lotononis is nodulated by phylogenetically diverse root nodule bacteria and different specificity groups exist within the genus.
