Cover photograph: A polar adhesin for every season. Like other Rhizobiales species, Rhodopseudomonas palustris produces an adhesin at a single pole (fluorescing green), allowing this bacterium to form multicellular, star-like “rosettes,” as shown. R. palustris is also one of the most metabolically versatile bacteria ever described. As signified by the different-colored panels, R. palustris produces polar adhesin across diverse phototrophic conditions differing in nitrogen and phosphate availability and salinity.
