Respiration and nitrogen fixation in legume root nodules is considered to be limited by the rate at which O2 from the atmosphere can enter nodules. A thin diffusion barrier in the inner cortex, restricts access to the central tissue where there is a high demand for and low concentration of O2. Observed variations in rates of nodule activities in response to imposed stresses, are often attributed to variations in the diffusion resistance of the barrier. In the present work, alternative or… CONTINUE READING
