Nitrogen-fixing bacteria , microorganisms capable of transforming atmospheric nitrogen into fixed nitrogen inorganic compounds usable by plants. More than 90 percent of all nitrogen fixation is effected by these organisms, which thus play an important role in the nitrogen cycle.
Nitrogen fixation is a chemical process by which molecular nitrogen N 2 in the air is converted into ammonia NH 3 or related nitrogenous compounds in soil. Biological nitrogen fixation or diazotrophy is an important microbially mediated process that converts dinitrogen N 2 gas to ammonia NH 3 using the nitrogenase protein complex Nif. Nitrogen fixation is essential to life because fixed inorganic nitrogen compounds are required for the biosynthesis of all nitrogen-containing organic compounds , such as amino acids and proteins , nucleoside triphosphates and nucleic acids. As part of the nitrogen cycle , it is essential for agriculture and the manufacture of fertilizer. It is also, indirectly, relevant to the manufacture of all nitrogen chemical compounds, which includes some explosives, pharmaceuticals, and dyes.

Non-Symbiotic Nitrogen Fixation
Environmental pollution problems and increased demand for green technologies in production are forcing farmers to introduce agricultural practices with a lower impact on the environment. Chickpea Cicer arietinum in arid and semi-arid environments is frequently affected by harsh environmental stresses such as heat, drought and salinity, which limit its growth and productivity and affect biological nitrogen fixation ability of rhizobia. Climate change had further aggravated these stresses. Inoculation with appropriate stress tolerant rhizobia is necessary for an environmentally friendly and sustainable agricultural production. In this study, endophytic bacteria isolated from chickpea nodules from different soil types and regions in Morocco, were evaluated for their phenotypic and genotypic diversity in order to select the most tolerant ones for further inoculation of this crop. Phenotypic characterization of endophytic bacteria from chickpea nodules showed a wide variability for tolerance to heavy metals and antibiotics, variable response to extreme temperatures, salinity, pH and water stress.
Methods in Soil Biology pp Cite as. A range of microorganisms is able to reduce dinitrogen from the atmosphere and use it as a source of nitrogen for cell growth. Besides the genera Clostridium and Azotobacter , nitrogen fixing abilities have also been revealed in anaerobic phototrophic bacteria as well as in many cyanobacteria, facultative anaerobes, autotrophic and methylotrophic bacteria, and desulfurizing and methanogenic bacteria in the last decades Schlegel Unable to display preview.

Nitrogen fixation in eukaryotes – New models for symbiosis
Access to fixed or available forms of nitrogen limits the productivity of crop plants and thus food production. Nitrogenous fertilizer production currently represents a significant expense for the efficient growth of various crops in the developed world. There are significant potential gains to be had from reducing dependence on nitrogenous fertilizers in agriculture in the developed world and in developing countries, and there is significant interest in research on biological nitrogen fixation and prospects for increasing its importance in an agricultural setting. Biological nitrogen fixation is the conversion of atmospheric N 2 to NH 3 , a form that can be used by plants.
Part of ammonification. Nitrogen is the most important, limiting element for plant production. Nitrogen fixation is an extremely important concept in agriculture, where many crops cannot perform nitrogen fixation … See more.
Symbiotic nitrogen-fixing bacterial populations trapped from soils under agroforestry systems in the Western Amazon. Cowpea Vigna unguiculata is an important grain-producing legume that can forego nitrogen fertilization by establishing an efficient symbiosis with nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Although inoculating strains have already been selected for this species, little is known about the genotypic and symbiotic diversity of native rhizobia.
В течение первого часа они, казалось, даже не замечали его присутствия. Обступив громадный стол, они говорили на языке, которого Беккеру прежде никогда не доводилось слышать, - о поточных шифрах, самоуничтожающихся генераторах, ранцевых вариантах, протоколах нулевого понимания, точках единственности. Беккер наблюдал за ними, чувствуя себя здесь лишним. Они рисовали на разграфленных листах какие-то символы, вглядывались в компьютерные распечатки и постоянно обращались к тексту, точнее - нагромождению букв и цифр, на экране под потолком, 5jHALSFNHKHHHFAF0HHlFGAFFj37WE fiUY0IHQ434JTPWFIAJER0cltfU4. JR4Gl) В конце концов один из них объяснил Беккеру то, что тот уже и сам понял.
