Sweden: Human Sex hormone encourages spruce root growth

Swedish researchers have found that an amino acid that aids sexual
performance in men also helps spruce trees develop stronger root

A team led by Torgny Nasholm, a forestry professor at the
Swedish University of the Agricultural Sciences, created a fertilizer
laced with arginine, Vasterbotten-Kurrien reported. The amino acid
improves sperm production and blood circulation in the genital area.
Nasholm found that trees given the fertilizer had stronger root
systems. As an additional environmental benefit, the trees were able
to draw nitrogen more effectively, allowing less nitrogen fertilizer
to be used. http://www.upi.com/Odd_News/2008/12/20/Enzyme_good_for_sex_also_good_for_trees/UPI-94631229818480/
