The phyllosphere of agricultural co-products as a new ecological niche for microorganisms of interest for lignocellulosic biomass fractionation

The phyllosphere, defined as the aerial parts of plants, is one of the most widespread microbial habitats on earth. The phyllosphere thus represents a unique niche where microorganisms have evolved over time in this stressful environment and have been able to acquire the ability to degrade lignocellulosic plant cell walls in order to survive under oligotrophic conditions. Different cultivation and molecular approaches have demonstrated the presence of new microbial taxa with new degradation metabolic pathways not previously detected representing a potential biotechnological interest for lignocellulosic biomass fractionation.
