...: Legumes rely on symbiotic bacteria called rhizobia to convert atmospheric dinitrogen (N2) to ammonia (NH3), a form that the plants can use to make proteins and other biological molecules ( Zahran, 1999 ). Chlorophyll content is commonly used as a surrogate for leaf nitrogen level because the two are...

... ( Appendix 1 ). I set a playful tone by dividing groups according to “mystery soil images,” photos of mycorrhizal fungi, a predatory loop fungus, nodules of Rhizobia bacteria, and a nitrogen atom; students pick “mystery soil images” from a hat and group with other students who picked the same image. After...
