2673. Holter, V.. 1978. Nitrogen fixation of four legumes in relation to above-ground biomass, root biomass, nodule number, and water content of the soil.. Oikos 31:230-235.
The study attempted to determine which plant characteristic was best correlated to acetylene reduction, and at what drought point it would stop. Four legumes were compared: vetch, red clover, -- clover, and black medic. All showed a drop in acetylene reduction around 8% water content on a clay soil. The correlation of various plant parameters with acetylene reduction was poor.
