Coriaria myrtifolia, the only species of the genus occurring in the western Mediterranean region, is extraordinarily abundant in the less dense woodlands of the Spanish provinces of Gerona and Barcelona (eastern part) at altitudes of 200–600 m., reaching occasionally to 1,000 m. and also descending in gullies to sea-level. It is more localized in the provinces of Lérida and Tarragona, and rare in more southerly provinces. It occurs, but is not now regarded as native, in Portugal1. The species… 
The occurrence of nitrogen-fixing root nodules on non-leguminous plants
TLDR
The author has surveyed the relevant literature to discover how many species in each of the genera have been recorded to bear nodules, and provides evidence of this feature in several species not hitherto reported.
First report on the occurrence of the uncultivated cluster 2 Frankia microsymbionts in soil outside the native actinorhizal host range area
TLDR
Tunisian trapped Frankia strains belong to the uncultivated cluster 2 strains that associate with other Coriaria species and also with Ceanothus, Datisca and Rosaceae actinorhizal species.
Effective nodulation of Coriaria myrtifolia L. induced by Frankia strains from Alnus glutinosa L. (Gaertn.)
TLDR
The present contribution covers the cross-inoculation between two actinorhizae belonging to different genera and families, mainly Alnus glutinosa and Coriaria myrtifolia, and attempts to re-isolate them from the nodules formed on C. myRTifolia failed, suggesting that isolation procedures different to those employed should be tried.
Induction of root nodules on Coriaria myrtifolia L. growing in water culture
TLDR
The authors succeeded in inducing nodulation of Coriaria growing in water culture by applying a crushed-nodule inoculum, and the use of a habitat soil extract in the culture solution enhanced nodulation.
Effective nodulation ofCoriaria myrtifolia L. induced byFrankia strains fromAlnus glutinosa L. (Gaertn.)
TLDR
The present contribution covers the cross-inoculation between two actinorhizae belonging to different genera and families, mainly Alnus glutinosa and Coriaria myrtifolia, and attempts to re-isolate them from the nodules formed onC.
Plant-endophyte symbiosis in non-leguminous plants
TLDR
A wide taxonomic range of non-leguminous dicotyledonous plants bear root nodules and are able to fix atmospheric nitrogen, and the Alnus glutinosa endophyte has been isolated and grownin vitro in root-nodule callus tissue.
Potential for Increasing Food Production Through Microbiology
With so many hungry and malnourished people in the world today, the food problem, when considered from a worldwide viewpoint, takes on a serious aspect. In the face of the rapidly increasing
Origin and Distribution of Nitrogen in Soil
The nitrogen cycle in soil is an integral part of the overall cycle of nitro· gen in nature. The primary source of soil nitrogen is the atmosphere, where the strongly bonded gaseous molecule N2 is

Una mirada de botànic i ecòleg a les muntanyes del Maresme
tambe als que heu vingut de lluny. Gracies per l’oportunitat de remirar les experiencies de fa tants anys i aprofitar la perspectiva en el temps d’una vida llarga. Als botanics i ecolegs ens es facil
