Abstract

In 1979 and 1980 there appeared again many reviews on various aspects of nitrogen fixation. These include biochemistry (MORTENSON and THORNELEY, 1979; YATES, 1980), bioenergetic problems (HAGEMAN and BURRIS, 1980; LJONES, 1979), genetics and regulation (BRILL, 1980; ELMERICH, 1979), nitrogen fixation and hydrogen metabolism (ROBSON and POSTGATE, 1980; YOCH, 1978), nitrogen fixation and photosynthesis in blue-green algae (STEWART, 1979, 1980), the symbiosis of legumes (PHILLIPS, 1980), the associations of bacteria with grass roots (VAN BERKUM and BOHLOOL, 1980) and of blue-green algae with eukaryotic plants (STEWART, 1978), and the exploitation of nitrogen fixation (POSTGATE, 1980). Books and symposium volumes were published by HARDY et al. (1979), HEWITT and CUTTING (1979), and STEWART and GALLON (1980).
