Variation in the Azotobacter population from several habitats in the botanical garden in Poznań

Acta Microbiol Pol B. 1975;7(4):219-22.


The abundance of Azotobacter was estimated in the rhizosphere of 13 plant species from four habitats in the Botanical Garden in Poznań. The results have shown that within the particular habitats the plant exerts a pronounced influence on the abundance of Azotobacter. The morphological differences between Azotobacter populations obtained from various habitats confirm the specific effect of the plant on this bacterium.
