Abstract

Three bacterial strains (WSM 1283, WSM 1284, WSM 1497) isolated from root nodules of the pasture legume Biserrula pelecinus L. growing in Morocco, Italy and Greece, respectively, were studied in order to determine their phylogenetic relationship to the other members of the family Rhizobiaceae. A polyphasic approach, which included analyses of morphological and physiological characteristics, plasmid profiles, symbiotic performance and 16S rRNA gene sequencing, indicated that these strains belong to the genus Mesorhizobium.
