Tropical Trees, Nitrogen, the Fix

Tropical Trees 'Fix' Themselves After Being Logged or Cleared: Capturing Nitrogen: "After examining the trees and the different areas, the scientists discovered something interesting. It turned out that tree species that fixed nitrogen from the atmosphere put on carbon weight up to nine times faster than their non-fixing neighbors during early stages of forest recovery. In fact, nitrogen-fixers provided enough nitrogen fertilizer in the soil to help with storage of about 50,000 kilograms of carbon per hectare during the first 12 years of growth."
