    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Assume that nitrogen cycling in a deciduous forest ecosystem is complete and involves all the producers, consumers and nitrogen fixing, denitrifying and ammonifying bacteria described in lecture

    a. Trace an atom of N (N15) that was released into the atmosphere of the forest through
    its route to a bacterial cell that releases it back to the air.

    b.Suppose that decompsers were removed from the forest ecosystem, predict what
    would happen to the rate of nitrogen cycling. Explain the logic behind your prediction.
