Editorial Reviews

The conversion by bacteria of nitrogen in the soil into atmospheric nitrogen may deplete the soil, may help reduce excessive concentrations from fertilizers, and may be part of the natural environmental nutrient cycling. The process, its measurement, and its significance are examined in 20 papers from a June 1989 symposium in Aarhus, Denmark. The topics include biochemistry and genetics, ecophysiology, and the emission of nitrogen-oxygen compounds. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
