Strangely enough, there is even yet no agreement among those who are working with the organisms causing nodules upon the roots of leguminous plants as to the name or names to be applied to them. In consequence there is more or less confusion in the literature. At the last meeting of the Society of American Bacteriologists (Madison, Wisconsin) attention was called to the fact that in a recent issue of Soil Science three different names were applied to the same organism: viz. Bacillus radicicola, Rhizobium leguminosarum and Rhizobium radicicolum. It was urged that some agreement be reached.
