“…The bacteria infecting carrots have a cell shape very similar to the long and thin bacilliform cells of 'Ca. Liberibacter americanus' presented in SEM pictures by Tanaka et al (2007). The very elongated cell shape is probably advantageous for these parasitic bacteria by making the cell surface area relatively large, which enhances the uptake of nutrients from the host cell cytoplasm.…”

“…Scanning electron microscopy images of liberibacters reveal that they have a rod-shaped morphology (Tanaka et al, 2007). 'Candidatus Liberibacter' species belong to the Alphaproteobacteria, with their closest relatives belonging to the genera Bradyrhizobium, Bartonella, Agrobacterium, Brucella and Afipia (Jagoueix et al, 1994).…”
