Summary The common bean (<em>Phaseolus vulgaris</em> L.) is the most important pulse crop in Latin America, as well as in large parts of Asia and Africa. It is particularly important due to its ability, in symbiosis with <em>Rhizobium</em> bacteria, to fix atmospheric nitrogen and due to its high nutrient value.<br/> Incorporating contributions from plant breeders, microbiologists, plant physiologists and soil scientists, this volume reports the results of an FAO/IAEA Coordinated Research Programme (1985--1991), whose main objective was to enhance yield and biological nitrogen fixation in common bean by reducing its reliance on soil and fertilizer nitrogen.<br/> The volume will be invaluable to scientists working on biological nitrogen fixation and legume production.<br/>
