Bacteria on Old-Growth Trees May Help Forests Grow

Image
Biology researchers discover that bacteria living in mosses on tree branches twice as effective at 'fixing' nitrogen as those on the ground. A new study by Dr. Zoë Lindo, a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Biology at McGill University, and Jonathan Whiteley, a doctoral student in the same department, shows that large, ancient trees may be very important in helping forests grow.
