Leaves from over 1000 Brazilian native plants growing in the cerrado and neighbouring regions were sampled for C and N content. Half of these were analysed for 15N and further samples for 13C and ash content. Nodulated legumes from all three sub-families were included, together with two types of reference plant, non-nodulated legumes and non-legumes. Particular emphasis was placed on the large caesalpinioid genus Chamaecrista which is here for the first time reported to fix nitrogen in its… CONTINUE READING
