Statement triggers "fire" once for each statement no matter how many rows that statement affects. Row triggers act for each row affected. A statement like "UPDATE myTable SET myField = 1" would fire a statement trigger only once. That same statement would cause a row trigger to fire as many times as there are rows in the table. MySQL currently only supports row triggers.
