Hardcover XXIV, 442 p ISBN 9781402035692
This volume covers all aspects of fundamental and applied nitrogen-fixation research,
extending from biochemistry and chemistry through genetics, regulation and physiology to
agricultural practice and environmental impact. It describes recent progress on studies
of potential catalysts for nitrogen fixation; how the N2-fixing process is regulated in living
cells; the use and impact of genetics and genomics on our understanding of the biological
process; the wide variety of associations of nitrogen-fixing microbes with plants, including the
formalized Rhizobium-legume and actinorrhizal associations as well as the less formalized
associative and endophytic interactions; and the impact of nitrogen fixation in agriculture and
forestry, including its effect on the environment. This volume provides an up-to-date referenced
source, which can be readily accessed by all practicing and otherwise interested proponents
of nitrogen fixation research, including those with related interests in the areas of plant and microbial
science, genomics, plant-microbe interactions, genetics and regulation, plant growth
and biocontrol, agriculture, forestry, ecology, taxonomy and evolution.
