Nitrogen-fixing bacteria associated with leguminous and non-leguminous plants

  title={Nitrogen-fixing bacteria associated with leguminous and non-leguminous plants},
  author={Claudine Franche and Kristina Lindstr{\"o}m and Claudine Elmerich},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
Nitrogen is generally considered one of the major limiting nutrients in plant growth. The biological process responsible for reduction of molecular nitrogen into ammonia is referred to as nitrogen fixation. A wide diversity of nitrogen-fixing bacterial species belonging to most phyla of the Bacteria domain have the capacity to colonize the rhizosphere and to interact with plants. Leguminous and actinorhizal plants can obtain their nitrogen by association with rhizobia or Frankia via… CONTINUE READING
