Rhizobiaceae are a family of proteobacteria, including many (but not all) species of rhizobia as well as plant parasites like . Rhizobiaceae are, like all Proteobacteria, Agrobacterium gram-negative. They are aerobic and the cells are usually rod-shaped. Many species of the Rhizobiaceae are [2 ] diazotrophs, they are able to fix nitrogen and are symbiotic with plant roots.
Phylogeny [ edit ]
The currently accepted taxonomy is based on the
List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN) and [1 ] National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and the phylogeny is based on 16S rRNA-based LTP release 106 by [3 ] The All-Species Living Tree Project [4 ]
