About this book

This book provides an introductory-level survey of biological nitrogen fixation, covering the role of the process in the global nitrogen cycle as well as its biochemistry, physiology, genetics, ecology, general biology and prospects for its future exploitation.

' ! this is an excellent little book that deserves a place on every microbiologist's bookshelf.' Robert Poole, Krebs Institute for Biomolecular Research, University of Sheffield ' ! this concise but engagingly written book is excellent value. It is ideal for students but will also be invaluable to other microbiologists who need basic information on nitrogen fixation.' Penny Hirsch, Society for Applied Microbiology Newsletter 'The book can be wholeheartedly recommended to the intended audience ! although the readership deserves to be, and probably will be, much wider ! this is an excellent little book that deserves a place on every microbiologist's bookshelf.' Robert Poole, Microbiology Today
