"This book is the self-contained final volume of a comprehensive seven-volume series covering the basic and applied science relating to nitrogen fixation. It addresses the most important nitrogen-fixing symbiosts of all - that between legumes and the root-module bacteria - and therefore deals with the properties and behaviour of both macro- and micro-symbiont."--Jacket.
