Nitrogen fixing bacteria - they reduce gaseous nitrogen to ammonia, which they use to manufacture amino acids.

Mutualistic bacteria - They live in nodules on the roots of plants (eg peas and beans) and they obtain carbohydrates from the plant and the plant gets amino acids from the bacteria

Hope that helps! :)
