Dinitrogen fixation in forest ecosystems

Dinitrogen fixation in forest ecosystems

Canadian Journal of Microbiology 29(8): 979-992

Dinitrogen fixation by plant-microbial associations in forest ecosystems is reviewed. The topics discussed include N2 fixation in actinorhizal and other nodulated, nonleguminous plants, nodular N2 fixation by legumes, rhizosphere N2 fixation, N2 fixation associated with aerial plant surfaces and structures, N2 fixation by free-living organisms in forest soils, and N2 fixation in wood.
