Legumes are noted for the relatively high protein content of their seed and high nitrogen concentration of vegetative parts. Apart from their distinguishing flower characteristics, legumes are also noted for their capacity to live symbiotically with bacteria in their roots, resulting in the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen by the Rhizobia for the plant use.
