Lignocelluloses are a major source of carbon into ecosystems and represent the principal constituent of agricultural, forestry and municipal wastes. The large proportion of cellulose and hemicellulose in these wastes leads to a high C:N ratio which often results in N limitation during decomposition. This could be overcome if the decomposer organisms combined both the cellulolytic (cellulase) and N2-fixing (nitrogenase) functions. With the exception of bacteria isolated from the specialized… CONTINUE READING
