About this book

Critical evaluation by international experts of the state of knowledge in the whole field of biological nitrogen fixation. Includes coverage of the chemistry of N2 reduction, a review of the whole range of organisms fixing N2, including the free-living and symbiotic organisms, and detailed consideration is given to the ecology and agricultural use of the root nodule bacteria, the molecular biology and biochemistry of nodule formation and fuction.
