Citation: Turner DR, Vitousek PM. 1987. Nodule biomass of the nitrogen-fixing alien Myrica faya Ait. in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Pac Sci 41: 186-190.
Abstract: Myricafaya forms a nitrogen-fixing symbiosis in which fixation
takes place in specialized root nodules. The biomass of these nodules was greater
in open-grown than shaded individuals of Myricafaya, and was greater in large
than small individuals. All Myricafaya examined, including seedlings and those
growing epiphytically, had active nodules. Nitrogen fixation by invading Myrica
faya could alter patterns of primary succession in Hawaii Volcanoes National
