    Running buffalo clover (RBC) [Trifolium stoloniferum (Muhl. ex Eat.)] is an endangered species whose survival is uncertain. An experiment was conducted on extant RBC sites to investigate biological nitrogen (N2) fixation, associated plant species, and soil conditions under natural mountain settings. Isotope (15N) dilution technique was used to calculate quantities of N fixation. Sites were sampled three times within a 2-yr period. Associated plant species were identified, and their dry matter contributions to the total system were assessed.
