This volume presents a review of recent developments in nitrogen fixation using transition metal–dinitrogen complexes in the last decade. The authors are international experts in the corresponding field and each chapter discusses their latest achievements in the preparation of various transition metal–dinitrogen complexes and their reactivity. The significance of taxonomy, mineral nutrition and agronomic measures for nitrogen fixation in legumes, and their physiology and morphology are covered in the first four chapters. Detailed reviews on the development, metabolism and senescence of nodules, nitrogen uptake, transport, utilization in nitrogen-fixing legumes and cost and energy relationships for these crops are . This book provides an introductory-level survey of biological nitrogen fixation, covering the role of the process in the global nitrogen cycle as well as its biochemistry, physiology, genetics, ecology, general biology and prospects for its future exploitation. Nitrogen Fixation: Fundamentals and Applications: Proceedings of the 10th International Congress on Nitrogen Fixation, St. Petersburg, Russia, May 28—June 3, Volume 27 of Current Plant Science and Biotechnology in Agriculture: Editors: Igor A. Tikhonovich, Nikolai A. Provorov, Vassily I. Romanov, William E. Newton: Edition: illustrated Reviews: 1.
It is this process and its major players which will be discussed in this book. Biological Nitrogen Fixation is a comprehensive two volume work bringing together both review and original research articles on key topics in nitrogen fixation. Chapters across both volumes emphasize molecular techniques and advanced biochemical analysis approaches applicable to various aspects of biological nitrogen fixation. The present volume is an attempt to reach this goal. Recent interest in understanding legume responses to climate change makes this volume timely. The “ Legume Nitrogen Fixation in a Changing Environment - Achievements and Challenges ” volume brings together the state-of-the-art overview of the legume-rhizobia interaction in the context of. Biological nitrogen fixation is a very valuable alternative to nitrogen fertilizer. This process will be discussed in the “Biological Nitrogen Fixation” book. A wide array of free-living and associative nitrogen fixing organisms (diazotrophs) will be covered. The legume has been rated as the highest contribution of biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) among the grain producers, with reports of rates of up to kgNha
discussed in greater detail in section Calculating amounts of N fixed from %Ndfa Once the plant N can be partitioned into fixed and soil-derived fractions on the. Genomes and Genomics of Nitrogen-fixing Organisms This is Volume 3 of a seven-volume series on all aspects of Nitrogen Fixation. The series aims to be the definitive authority in the field and to act as a benchmark for some years to cturer: Springer. Biological nitrogen fixation (BNF), the process by which gaseous N2 is converted into ammonia (NH3) via the enzyme nitrogenase, is crucial for the availability of nitrogen .
