Ben Turner, staff scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, is investigating how some of the world’s worst soils in southwestern Australia support a great diversity of plants. Discoveries about nutrient uptake by plants in poor soils could make it possible for people to grow crops on degraded land everywhere. (Photo courtesy of Ben Turner)
