In the process of biological fixation of atmospheric nitrogen, root nodule growth and development in legumes is theresult of the symbiosis relationship between these plant species and nitrogen fixing bacteria. In this respect, researchpoints out the effect of common bird’s-foot-trefoil (Lotus corniculatus L.) seed size on root nodule formation capacity inthe presence of nitrogen fixing bacterium Mesorhyzobium loti. Our results show that there is a direct relationshipbetween seed size and dimensional features of root nodules in common bird’s-foot-trefoil (number of nodules/plant, andweight of nodules).
