N. Rascio, N. La Rocca, in Encyclopedia of Ecology, The biological nitrogen fixation, carried out by prokaryotes, leads to the reduction of molecular nitrogen to ammonia subsequently assimilated in amino is an event of capital importance allowing for the recovery of nitrogen irreversibly lost in ecosystems due to bacterial activities. Biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) is a key ecological process that can restore nitrogen (N) lost in wildfire and shape the pace and pattern of post-fire forest recovery. 9.

A textbook for advanced students of forest science, ecology, and environmental studies as well as a reference for professionals in these fields, Forest Ecosystems offers a comprehensive survey of the structure and functioning of forest ecosystems worldwide: temperate, tropical, and boreal. Basic ecological concepts are stressed throughout, at scales ranging from the global to the microscopic 4/5(1). N-cycling in many forest ecosystems can be characterized by a relatively closed nature where the rates of input from precipitation and biological N 2 fixation balances outputs by denitrification, volatilization, and leaching losses. Forest exposed to enhanced N depositions, as is typical in urban areas or regions with intensive animal farming. Biological nitrogen fixation is an important part of many agroforestry, sustainable agriculture, and land rehabilitation practices. Although the terms "nitrogen fixing plants" and "nitrogen fixing trees (NFTs)" are widely used, the plants themselves do not have the ability to make use of the nitrogen gas in the air-- it is only through the.
