Some effects of acidity and heavy metals on the rhizobium — leguminous plant association


The possibility that factors in addition to soil reaction might explain the ecology of rhizobia in acid soils is discussed using as examples a) the influence of exchangeable bases, water content and cultivation on the distribution of rhizobia in soil; and b) pure culture studies of acid tolerance, production of acidic by-products and the reduction of… (More)
