Azolla: Botany, physiology, and use as a green manure
This is a comprehensive review of literature pertaining to the aquatic fern Azolla and its nitrogen-fixing algal symbiont, Anabaena azollae. The preceding decade has witnessed an explosive growth in
AZOLLA FERN AS UNTRADITIONAL RESOURCE OF PROTEIN
TLDR
Chemical analysis indicated that Concentrated protein of azolla (ACP) could be used as feed supplement for human because its high levels of carbohydrate, protein, crude fat, total digestible nutrients and lower crude fiber contents.
Azolla: A review of its biology and utilization
TheAzolla-Anabaena symbiosis is outstanding due to its high productivity combined with its ability to fix nitrogen at high rates. Because of this, in recent decades, countless studies have been
TheAzolla-Anabaena association: Historical perspective, symbiosis and energy metabolism
TLDR
The two partners in the association exhibit a comparable developmental gradient and a mechanism of cooperative integration for their energy metabolism, thus improving the efficiency of solar energy conversion and presenting a unique model for biotechnology.
FEEDING VALUE OF AZOLLA (AZOLLA PINNATA) IN BUFFALO CALVES
TLDR
The study evaluated the potential feeding value of Azolla by its chemical composition, amino acid profile, IVDMD, Insacco D M and Crude protein degradability and showed the best performance of A. pinnata in terms of dry matter utilization in buffalo cows, recommended as a good unconventional protein supplement in the rations of ruminants and non ruminant.
POTENTIALITY OF USING A. PINNATA TO BIOREMEDIATE DIFFERENT HEAVY METALS FROM POLLUTED DRAINING WATER
Azolla pinnata is a small aquatic fern which considered as a multipurpose organism. It isused in bioremediation to remove heavy metals from polluted draining waters. In view of its potentiality,
THE AZOLLA-ANABAENA SYMBIOSIS: MORPHOLOGY, PHYSIOLOGY AND USE
TLDR
The physiological, biochemical, morphological and ultrastructural studies which support a current hypothesis of host-symbiont interactions and structure-function relationships are described and are largely based on recent studies of the ontogenetic sequence of leaf development and associated events in the symbiotic cyanobacterium.
Salinity tolerance mechanism in the aquatic nitrogen fixing pteridophyte Azolla: a review
TLDR
The present review discusses on the effect of salinity on Azolla and its cyanobiont with an emphasis on the physiological, biochemical and molecular mechanisms ofSalinity tolerance.

The water-ferns, represented by Salvinia and Azolla, are among the most curious of plants, and would not ordinarily be taken to be related to the ferns. Salvinia plants consist of a shoot up to one

TLDR
It is concluded that section Azolla gave rise to section Rhizosperma and the latter could have been derived from the nine-floated condition of Azolla primaeva, which bears bisexual sporocarps.

The techniques of growing plant cells, tissues, and organs, as well as entire plants, under aseptic conditions have been a valuable aid in the fields of plant physiology and morphogenesis. Except for
EFFECT OF NITROGEN-FIXING BLUE-GREEN ALGA: TOLYPOTHRIX TENUIS ON THE NITROGENOUS FERTILITY OF PADDY SOIL AND ON THE CROP YIELD OF RICE PLANT
TLDR
The fact that the favorable effect of algal inoculation increased year by year may be attributed to the accumulation in the paddy field of the algal cells which would be partially decomposed and partially remain and proliferate in the following years to increase, at any rate, the nitrogenous fertility of thepaddy soil.

TLDR
These studies indicate that Nostoc muscorum is an organism of considerable importance in soils and possibly in fresh ponds and lakes, adding both nitrogen and organic matter to its growth medium and its nitrogen-fixing ability demonstrated.

STUDIES ON FOSSIL AZOLLA: AZOLLA MONTANA, A CRETACEOUS MEGASPORE WITH MANY SMALL FLOATS
TLDR
Azolla montana is a new species from the late Cretaceous which has a megaspore apparatus with a single large and conspicuous columella which resembles the floats of the megaspor apparatus of many extant species; it is suggested that the floats were derived, phyletically, by segmentation of the colum Bella.
Observations on Microsporocarpic Material of Azolla Caroliniana
TLDR
On October 8, 1960, about 6 miles south of Perry, Taylor County, Florida, a small collection was made, subsequent examination of which revealed the presence of microsporocarps, and the senior author revisited the locality and procured a larger quantity of material.
