Resource allocation in the legume-rhizobia symbiosis: an integration of modelling and experimental approaches

Abstract:

The symbiosis between plants of the legume family and nitrogen-fixing rhizobia underpins global food security. Legume crops are a major source of protein in human diets, either directly or indirectly as feed for livestock. Application of inoculant rhizobial strains is common practice in many areas, as plant growth is often nitrogen limited and the symbiosis can significantly enhance yields. However, rhizobial strains and outcomes of the symbiosis vary widely. This variation has also been s...
