Does Rhizobium Show Symbiosis?


Rhizobium establishes a mutually beneficial relationship with its host plant. This symbiotic relationship allows Rhizobium to perform nitrogen fixation.

Legumes can form a symbiotic relationship with Rhizobia (nitrogen-fixing soil bacteria). As a result, this symbiotic relationship forms nodules on the roots of plants. In these nodules, bacteria convert the nitrogen of the atmosphere into a form which can be used by plants – ammonia.
