Plants in the legume family (also known as Fabaceae) have the remarkable ability to form associations with a group of bacteria called rhizobia, allowing them to take in nitrogen from the atmosphere. Casey explains the science behind nitrogen fixation and proposes a fun, new name for this family of plants. Do you think the plant taxonomists will go for it?
