Nodulation in legumes
This discusses the genetic structure of both legumes and rhizobia and how these interact to give a variety of forms of functional nodules. Also discusses the significance of nitrogen fixation in ecological terms and the way legumes are adapted to life in harsh environment. The aim of this book is to provide an up-to-date picture of the nodulation status of legumes, using largely the same taxonomic system as its companion volume "Legumes of the World".
