Beyond the zebrafish: diverse fish species for modeling ...
A key feature of these fish species is that the pathological condition that they model is often related to specific evolutionary adaptations. By exploring these adaptations, new diseasecausing and diseasemodifier genes might be identified thus, diverse fish species could be exploited to better understand the complexity of disease processes.Cited by: 176
Diverse members of the Ralstonia solanacearum
The bacterial wilts of banana known as Moko disease, Bugtok disease and blood disease are caused by members of the R. solanacearum species complex. R. solanacearum is a heterogeneous species which has been divided into 4 genetic groups known as phylotypes.Within the R. solanacearum species complex, strains that cause Moko and Bugtok diseases belong to phylotype II. The blood disease Cited by: 121

Pantoea: insights into a highly versatile and diverse ...
INTRODUCTION. The genus Pantoea is a diverse group of yellowpigmented, rodshaped Gramnegative bacteria in the Enterobacteriaceae.Some of the first members were recognized as plant pathogens causing galls, wilting, soft rot and necrosis in a variety of agriculturally relevant plants, but since then, Pantoea strains have been frequently isolated from many aquatic and terrestrial

Species diversity Wikipedia
Species diversity is the number of different species that are represented in a given community a dataset. The effective number of species refers to the number of equally abundant species needed to obtain the same mean proportional species abundance as that observed in the dataset of interest where all species may not be equally abundant.8
