A Study of the Nitrogen-fixing Microbiota of Macquarie Island Plant Communities
Entry ID: ASAC_194

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The nitrogen fixing biota of Macquarie Island are dominated by cyanobacteria growing epiphytically or symbiotically with plants or lichens. Highest rates of acetylene reduction (N-fixation) were found in the leafy lichen Peltigera sp. Colonising herbfields and short grasslands, and in the coastal angiosperm Colobanthus muscoides. Significant rates of N-fixation were also associated with the ... View entire text
