Researchers find nature's backup plan for converting nitrogen into plant nutrients

Princeton University

Although nitrogen is essential for all living organisms -- it makes up 3% of the human body -- and comprises 78% of Earth's atmosphere, it's almost ironically difficult for plants and natural systems to access it.
