Abstract:
Microbial endophytes are plant associated microbes that colonize living internal tissues of plants without causing any visible symptoms. Virtually all plants are hosts to endophytic microorganisms and may usually be Fungi, Bacteria and Actinomycetes. In last two decades, good deal of information relating endophytic associations has been accumulated. In this review, we focus endophytic microorganisms concerning to their unique ecological niche and their interactions with host. The information about endophytic evolution, transmission, nature, ecological significance, role and their benefits have been elaborated. Study of microbial endophyte ecology and interactions holds a great promise and use of endophytes may offer an innovative, economical, novel and environmentally sound strategies for plant health, productivity and sustainable environment management in near future.
