Nitrogen fixing legumes rely on phosphorus for nodule formation, nodule function and the energy costs
of fixation. Phosphorus is however very limited in soils, especially in ancient sandstone-derived soils such
as those ...

Legumes have the unique ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen (N2) via symbiotic bacteria in their nodules
but depend heavily on phosphorus (P), which affects nodulation, and the carbon costs and energy
costs of N2 fixation. ...
