About this title


This book deals with recent information on nitrogen-fixing bacteria which associate with plant roots. The subject emerged only 15 years ago, and has gained tremendous interest and impact because of the increasing need to replace nitrogenous fertilizers, especially in developing countries, where the need for high food production must be based on low input. Although legumes can be widely used for this purpose, the extension of biological nitrogen fixation to cereals remains the major challenge for agricultural research. This book describes in detail the eight new aerobic or microaerobic diazotrophs which occur on and in plant roots and discusses their physiology, ecology and interaction with the plant.
