The Pulse Microbiology programme has inevitably concentrated on the Rhizobium-legume symbiosis. This involves not only the ecology of the Rhizobium, and of the legume, and of the legume, but the formation, development and decline of the symbiotic system with each cycle of plant growth. Clearly other microorganisms are involved in the Rhizobium ecology and are also relevent to the initiation and development of the symbiosia - the most notable being the mycorrhizal fungi. As far back as 1924, Jones referred to the "tripartite" association, legumes - rhizobia-mycorrhizac. Mycorrhizac are now attracting the sort of interest which Rhizobium attracted 30 years ago. While I look forward to collaboration in studies of the mycorrhizac with the pulses in the future, this presentation will be confined to the Rhizobium-legume symbiosis
