The findings suggest that the role of tropical forests in offsetting the atmospheric buildup of carbon from fossil fuels depends on […]

Tropical forests ‘fix’ themselves: Nitrogen fixation in tropics has far-reaching implications for global warming

Tropical forests speed their own recovery, capturing nitrogen and carbon faster after being logged or cleared for agriculture. Researchers working at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama think the discovery that trees «turn up» their ability to capture or «fix» nitrogen from the air and release it into the soil as the forest makes […]
