Reviews

@qu:...The chapters devoted to the different nitrogenase systems covering topics from structural biology to genetic regulation provide a very good and comprehensive overview of all aspects concerning functioning and synthesis of the enzyme complexes that are in the hearth of biological nitrogen fixation. @source:Journal of Plant Physiology @from:S. Nordlund @qu:...I find the book an excellent introduction to nitrogen fixation research. ...researchers will find the book an excellent source for updating their knowledge in different areas, especially as most chapters provide 100-150 references. @source:Applied Soil Ecology
