Abstract

SUMMARY: Anaerobically grown bacteria isolated from the hindgut contents of the termites (Froggatt), Froggatt and (Hill) were nitrogenase-positive as assayed by acetylene reduction. Nitrogen fixation, confirmed with N, was highest in the isolate from All isolates were identified as (Braak) Werkman & Gillen.
