The last several decades have witnessed dramatic advances in unfolding the diversity and commonality of oceanic diazotrophs and their N2 -fixing potential. More recently, substantial progress in diazotrophic cell biology has provided a wealth of information on processes and mechanisms involved. The substantial contribution by the diazotrophic cyanobacterial genus Trichodesmium to the nitrogen influx of the global marine ecosystem is by now undisputable and of paramount ecological importance… CONTINUE READING
