- Dynamics of the taxonomic structure of epiphytic bacterial communities of the rhizosphere and phyllosphere of seven weed species was studied. The major types of isolated organisms were identified using phenotypic and molecular biological approaches. Dispersion analysis revealed that the ontogenesis stage and plant organ were the factors with the greatest effect on the taxonomic structure of the communities. The dominant microorganisms of weeds were similar to those of cultivated plants. The minor components revealed in the spectra of bacterial communities of weeds belonged to poorly studied genera of chemolithotrophic proteobacteria.
