Rhizobia bacteria for Nitrogen Fixing Trees

Hi everyone,

I recently read (" Nitrogen Fixing Tree Start-Up Guide"by Craig R. Elevitch and Kim M. Wilkinson) that when planting NFT seeds you should match them with symbiotic rhizobia strains.
Does anyone know of a table that demonstrates various NFTs with their matching rhizobia bacteria?

Thanks,
