Specimens of Chamaebatia foliolosa Benth. with nodule structures on their roots fix atmospheric nitrogen. The nodules are similar to those of other non-legumes in gross morphology and structure, containing hyphal strands, some with club-shaped vesicles at their ends. A fixation rate of 130 nmoles N2 per g fresh weight per hr is reported by using 15N2 as a tracer. Equivalent rates of acetylene reduction were observed.
