The purpose of this study was to isolate the symbiotic endophyte from S. argentea nodules in pure culture and to study the endophyte morphology in situ. In addition to permitting identification of the endophyte, it could be more closely studied for its role in and benefit from the symbiosis. The morphological study in situ would aid in selecting nodule isolates to test for nodule forming ability. The morphological study, therefore, would also aid in identifying the endophyte.
