Aspects of Plant Bacteriology

Plant bacteriology is the scientific study of plant diseases caused by pathogens which includes in the identification of bacteria, disease etiology, disease cycles, economic impact, epidemiology of plant diseases, plant disease resistance, the way in which plant diseases affect humans and animals. Most of the plant pathogenic bacteria are rod-shaped (bacilli). They will colonize the plants by using their specific pathogenicity factors. There are five major bacterial pathogenicity factors: uses of cell wall–degrading enzymes, toxins, effector proteins, phytohormones and exopolysaccharides. Agrobacterium species varies the level of auxins which causes tumours with phytohormones. Exopolysaccharides are produced by bacteria and which blocks xylem vessels that frequently leads to the death of the plant.
