For example, in some volcanically disturbed forests of Hawaii, Walker and Vitousek (1991) have shown that the introduced Myrica faya, a species with symbiotic N-fixing bacteria, inhibited the growth and germination of native trees, despite the fact that Myrica significantly enriched the N-poor soil.
(1987) found that N mineralization rates in young volcanic soils under Myrica faya, a species with an N-fixing symbiont, were significantly higher than from soils under Metrosideros polymorpha trees that do not have N-fixing symbioses.
