Invasive tropical legume alters soil nitrogen dynamics

As global change continues to be studied, the scientific community needs quantitative assessments to inform mitigation decisions and predict outcomes. Because restoration and management plans designed to address global change issues are resource-limited, decision-makers require empirical information to best prioritize. Invasive alien species comprise one of the components of global change that results from the human footprint.
