A combination of physiological and structural measurements made on nodulated cowpea and soybean plants cultured with roots in different pO(2) permitted the expression of data in various ways. Values of leghemoglobin concentration and nitrogenase activity from the two legumes were expressed conventionally either on a per plant or per gram nodule fresh weight basis, and where microscopy was done, on the basis of nitrogenase-containing, N(2)-fixing units (i.e. per bacteroid, per infected cell, or… CONTINUE READING
