Observations on the fine structure of the root nodule endophyte of Hippophaë rhamnoides L.


Electron microscopy of ultra-thin sections of Hippophaë rhamnoides root nodules has been carried out in order to elucidate the nature of the endophyte. The organism is seen as a branching, septate filament approximately 0.6 microns in diameter bearing on its terminal ends spherical sub-divided vesicles 3–4 microns in diameter. In the mature nodule the… (More)
