Abstract
A lupin endemism, Lupinus mariae-josephae (Lmj), singularly has been identified in the Valencia province, in Eastern Spain. This lupin thrives in alkaline-limed soils with high pH, a unique habitat for lupins, from a small area in Valencia region. In these soils, Lmj grows in just a few small, defined patches, and previous conservation efforts directed towards controlled plant reproduction have been unsuccessful. This lupin was thought to be extinct in Valencia until 2007, when it was discovered in a limestone patch. The reasons behind Lmj endangered status are presently unknown. This study will focus on the symbiosis between Lmj and rhizobia, and how this relationship might impact the population size of Lmj. We have previously shown that Lmj plants establish a specific root nodule symbiosis with bradyrhizobia present in those soils, and we reasoned that the paucity of these bacteria in soils might contribute to the lack of success in reproducing plants for conservation purposes.
