Large mammals, for example: bears, wolfs, large cats, cetaceans… Any selected species from any of the named groups of animals is a bioindicator.

Nitrogen fixing bacteria in plants

How the process is carried out and evolution of nitrogenase. There is 78 % of molecular nitrogen (N2) in the atmosphere which can be bound in compounds only by procaryotes. Eukaryotes cannot fix (that is make useful compounds of) atmospheric nitrogen and convert it into an ion, therefore they need symbiosis with prokaryotes as atmospheric …
