ABSTRACT
The phyllosphere refers to the entire aerial habitat of plants while phylloplane describes the entire leaf surface. The phylloplane provides a niche for diversified microbial communities and as such it is an important ecosystem both ecologically and economically. For many years, phylloplane dwellers have been studied as bio protectants and enhancers of growth in host plants. Plants and phylloplane-microbial-interactions result in increased fitness and productivity of agricultural crops. In this study, an attempt was made to compile previous studies in order to better understand the role of phylloplane microbiota in influencing the physiology of flora. We also proposed possible further research to explore molecular aspects of signaling mechanisms established by the phylloplane microbial community with their hosts which impact the latter’s physiology.
