About Phaseolus vulgaris

Legumes are the third largest family of angiosperms and include many populous species. The majority of legumes contain symbiotic bacteria within nodules in their roots that mediate nitrogen fixation and provide an advantage towards competing plants. Legume seeds are rich in protein content and thus many species have been used for human or animal consumption over the years. Legumes as a whole constitute the second largest class of crops, including peas, soybeans, peanuts, and beans. Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) is fundamental for the nutrition of more than 500 million people in developing countries and a major source of protein that complements carbohydrate-rich rice, maize, and cassava.
