Negative trait-based association between abundance of nitrogen fixing trees and long-term tropical forest biomass accumulation

Jack Brookshire, Bryce Currey & Michael Oatham
1. Plant functional traits are thought to drive biomass production and biogeochemical cycling in tropical forests, but it remains unclear how nitrogen (N)-fixing legumes influence the functional traits of neighboring trees and forest-wide biomass dynamics. Further, the degree to which effects of N-fixers are density-dependent and may depend on stem size and spatial scale remain largely unknown. 2. Here, we examine 30-years of stem demography data for ~20,000 trees in a lowland tropical forest in...
