Contents Notes Bacteria Involved in Nitrogen-Fixing Legume Symbiosis: Current Taxonomic Perspective -- Enhancing Rhizobium-Legume Symbiosis Using Signaling Factors -- Key Molecules Involved in Beneficial Infection Process in Rhizobia-Legume Symbiosis -- Recent Advances in Rhizobium-Legume Interactions: A Proteomic Approach -- Role of Ethylene and Bacterial ACC Deaminase in Nodulation of Legumes -- Microbial Biofilms: How Effective in Rhizobium-Legume Symbiosis? -- Potential of Rhizobia as Plant Growth-Promoting Rhizobacteria -- Engineering Nodulation Competitiveness of Rhizobial Bioinoculants in Soils -- Growth Promotion of Legumes by Inoculation of Rhizosphere Bacteria -- Mycorrhizosphere Interactions for Legume Improvement -- Role of Phosphate-Solubilizing Bacteria in Legume Improvement -- Legume Responses to Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi Inoculation in Sustainable Agriculture -- Bacterial Biofilms: Role in Rhizobium-Legume Symbiosis -- Role of Metal Tolerant Microbes in Legume Improvement -- Legumes-Microbes Interactions Under Stressed Environments -- Role of Azospirillum in the Improvement of Legumes -- Role of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi in Nitrogen Fixation in Legumes -- Symbiotic Nitrogen Fixation in Tropical Food Grain Legumes: Current Status -- Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria Improving the Legume-Rhizobia Symbiosis -- The Potential Use of Rhizobium-Legume Symbiosis for Enhancing Plant Growth and Management of Plant Diseases -- Microbial Inoculants for Sustainable Legume Production. Microbes for Legume Improvement comprises 21 chapters and provides comprehensive information on concepts of microbial technology for the improvement of legumes grown in different agro-ecosystems. The role of microbes including symbiotic nitrogen fixers, asymbiotic nitrogen fixing bacteria (like Azospirillum), plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR), phosphate-solubilizing microbes, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and biocontrol agents in the improvement of both conventional and forage legumes growth is discussed. The role of bacterial biofilms in legume-Rhizobium interactions and metal tolerant microbes in the improvement of legumes is dealt separately. Furthermore, recent findings on the taxonomic status of rhizobia, various signal molecules affecting symbiosis, legume-pathogen and legume-rhizobial interactions and proteomic analysis of legume-microbe interactions are addressed. This volume gives a broad view of legume disease management using microbes and presents strategies for the management of cultivated legumes. It is therefore of special interest to both academics and professionals working in the field of microbiology, soil microbiology, environment microbiology, biotechnology and agronomy as well as plant protection sciences.
