Abstract

This chapter surveys biofilm formation and cellulose expression amongst soil and plant-associated pseudomonads (epiphytes or pathogens). Partially acetylated cellulose has been implicated in biofilm formation and successful phytosphere colonization by the plant growth promoting rhizobacteria, Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW25.
