Leaf 15N abundance of subarctic plants provides field evidence that ericoid, ectomycorrhizal and non - and arbuscular mycorrhizal species access different sources of soil nitrogen.
Miombo is notable among dry tropical woodlands for the dominance of tree species with ectomycorrhizal rather than vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal associations.

Like Rhizobium, vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (YAM) are soil organisms that invade the roots of NFTs and other plants to form symbiotic relationships.
The majority of tropical nitrogen fixing trees form symbiotic associations with vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizae (YAM) in the endomycorrhizal group.
