Phylogenetic positions and diversity of leaf-endophytic species. The tree was constructed based on 16S rDNA sequences using the Neighbor-Joining method. Bootstrap values (using 1000 replicates) are indicated at the branching points. Scale bar represents % estimated substitutions. Candidates for nitrogen-fixers (shown in blue) indicate the presence of nifH gene as evidenced by PCR amplifications. The number of strains is shown in parenthesis in red. The arrowhead sizes indicate the relative abundance of the genus
