Abstract

SUMMARY: Analyses, tests with isotopic nitrogen and tests for acetylene and isocyanide reduction, using both continuous and batch cultures, were made with seven strains of putative nitrogen-fixing bacteria and three local isolates. Only two (single strains of and ) fixed nitrogen; the active pseudomonad differed in several respects from the organism originally reported. Other Pseudomonas, Nocardia and Azotomonas species and the three local isolates did not fix; some simulated nitrogen fixation in cultural tests most impressively, but proved simply to be very efficient scavengers of traces of fixed nitrogen.
