Who needs redundancy? Well, everyone, it turns out.

To learn more about this topic, start your googling with these keywords:
- Ecological redundancy (also: functional redundancy or functional equivalence): the ecological phenomena that multiple species representing a variety of taxonomic groups can share similar roles in ecosystem functionality
- Legume: a plant in the Fabaceae family
- Nitrogen fixation: the chemical process by which atmospheric nitrogen is assimilated into organic compounds
