The nitrogen cycle is the continuous series of natural processes by which nitrogen passes from the air to the soil, to plants, and ultimately to sustain all animal life, and then returns back to the air or soil through decay or denitrification that is the loss of nitrogen.Through nitrogen fixation, nitrogen gas is converted into inorganic nitrogen compounds to be used by plants, animals, and people. This conversion is accomplished through the nitrogen cycle, in which nitrogen as a gas is carried to the earth's ...
Environmental Revolution and Biogeochemical cycles for carbon, phosphorous, and nitrogen
1. Revolutionary changes in human culture have greatly changed the relationship between humans and the environment. How have the Neolithic and Industrial Revolution impacted the natural environment, and what is meant by the Environmental Revolution?
2. The recycling of elements is another vital functional process occurring in all ecosystems. Describe the biogeochemical cycles for carbon, phosphorous, and nitrogen. How have humans impacted these three cycles?
3. The goods and services performed by natural ecosystems are essential to human survival. What is their overall value, and of what significance is it to measure this value?View Full Posting Details
