Symbiotic bacteria: From hitchhiker to beetle bodyguard

Added: 28.04.2017 18:52 | 4 views | 0 comments

Bacterial symbionts transition between plant pathogenicity and insect defensive mutualism, a new report demonstrates. The bacterium Burkholderia gladioli lives in specific organs of a plant-feeding beetle and defends the insect's eggs from detrimental fungi by producing antibiotics. However, when transferred to a plant, the bacterium can spread throughout the tissues and negatively affect the plant.

Ocean acidification could impair the nitrogen-fixing ability of marine bacteria

Added: 28.04.2017 14:52 | 4 views | 0 comments

While increased carbon dioxide levels theoretically boost the productivity of nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the world's oceans, because of its 'fertilizing' effect, a new study reveals how increasingly acidic seawater featuring higher levels of this gas can overwhelm these benefits, hampering the essential service these bacteria provide for marine life.
