Abstract

The development and structure of the root nodules of Myrica gale are described, and evidence advanced showing that they represent modified lateral roots. Attempts at the isolation of the endophyte were unsuccessful, but on the basis of a cytological study of the nodules the author adheres to the view of some previous investigators that the endophyte is actinomycetal.
