    ..that alone fixes between 1.5 and 2.0 kg N ha(-1) yr(-1) in mid- to late-successional forests of northern Scandinavia and Finland. Previous efforts have probably underestimated N-fixation potential in boreal forests...

    Department of Ecosystem and Conservation Sciences, University of Montana, Missoula, Montana 59812, USA
    Ecology 87:2511-22. 2006
    ..Our results corroborate the largely untested hypothesis that frequent fire in ponderosa pine forests increases inorganic N availability in the long term and emphasize the need to study natural, unmanaged sites in far greater detail...
