Title: Evidence for foliar endophytic nitrogen fixation in a widely distributed subalpine conifer

Coniferous forest nitrogen (N) budgets indicate unknown sources of N. A consistent association between limber pine (Pinus flexilis) and potential N2-fixing acetic acid bacteria (AAB) indicates that native foliar endophytes may supply subalpine forests with N.
