Abstract: Mimosa foliolosa is a promising native species of rupestrian fields for revegetation of degraded areas in this ecosystem. The symbiosis between leguminous plants and N2-fixing bacteria may play an important role in the recovery of these areas, since these plants have better development and are more resistant to the attack of pathogens. In addition to the biological nitrogen fixation (BNF), these bacteria can promote plant growth through other processes, such as phosphate solubilization and siderophore production. We studied the cultural and genetic characteristics of 11 bacterial strains, isolated from rupestrian field soils using Mimosa tenuiflora as “trap” plant. We evaluated these strains considering their symbiotic characteristics such as nodulation, and growth-promotion of Mimosa foliolosa, as well as their ability for siderophore production and phosphate solubilization. Native N2-fixing bacterial strains belonging to the Paraburkholderia genus (UFLA01-750, UFLA01-728, UFLA01-725, and UFLA01-757), showed high symbiotic efficiency with M. foliolosa. These strains also solubilized calcium phosphate and produced siderophores, exhibiting high functional diversity and potential for use in revegetation projects.
