Data from: Substrate stoichiometry determines nitrogen fixation throughout succession in southern Chinese forests

Mianhai Zheng, Hao Chen, Dejun Li, Yiqi Luo & Jiangming Mo
The traditional view holds that biological nitrogen (N) fixation often peaks in early- or mid-successional ecosystems and declines throughout succession based on the hypothesis that soil N richness and/or phosphorus (P) depletion become disadvantageous to N fixers. This view, however, fails to support the observation that N fixers can remain active in many old-growth forests despite the presence of N-rich and/or P-limiting soils. Here, we found unexpected increases in N fixation rates in the soil,...
