What is Phyllosphere ?
The phyllosphere is the habitat adjacent of the plane leaf. In other words it is the environment in immediate vicinity of plant leaf. Like phylloplane various bacterial and fungal populations occur in the phyllosphere too. The principle populations in the phyllosphere region of green needles of some species of Pinus are Pseudomonas, even Pseudomonas fluorescens. The populations of Sporobolomyces roseus Rhodotorula glutinis, R. mucilaginosa Cryptococcus laurentii, Torulpsis ingeniosa and Aureobasidium pullans are commonly found in the phyllosphere.
