About this book

Proceedings of the 10th International Congress on Nitrogen Fixation held in St Petersburg, Russia, in May 1995. These papers present nitrogen fixation research as a rapidly growing area of science, using the methods of, and acumulating data from, many fundamental branches of biology and chemistry.

' ... the text is unusually crisp and clear, making it exceptionally readable ... a valuable resource ... will be a good point to begin exploring the entire topic ... I highly recommend this book as a valuable resource for any research library and for the serious researcher in nitrogen fixation. In my opinion, it is the type of book that one would go back to and always be able to discover something new.' Soil Science, 162:2 (1997)
