The survival of Azolla was studied in an artificial system which simulated the soil/water interface and the desiccation of soil during a fallow period in lowland rice culture. Tests with non-sporulating and sporulating Azolla fronds showed that Azolla only survives with sporulated fronds. At their reappearance the Azolla fronds already harboured the Anabaena endophyte. A detailed light microscopic and transmission electron microscopic study of macro- and micros-porocarp formation and… CONTINUE READING
