Nitrogen Cycle Archives

Find articles written about the nitrogen cycle. Our articles about the nitrogen cycle are very informative and can be used to better understand the nitrpgen cycle, the affects the cycle is having on the world and other facts.

Plants and animals are involved in the nitrogen cycle

Posted on 9th June, 2022 by Luke Barclay

Plants take up nitrogen in their roots. Animals get these compounds when they eat plants. Nitrogen compounds in the organic matter re-enter the soil when plants and animals die or excrete waste.

How are legs important to the nitrogen cycle?

Posted on 9th June, 2022 by Luke Barclay

In some plants, thebacteria live in small growths on the roots called nodules. The NH3 produced by the bacteria is absorbed by the plant. Nitrogen fixation is a partnership between a plant and a bacterium.

Carbon Oxygen and Nitrogen are part of the ecology

Posted on 9th June, 2022 by Luke Barclay

Humans have changed the natural carbon cycle by burning fossil fuels. The nitrogen cycle begins with nitrogen gas in the atmosphere and goes through nitrogen-fixing organisms to plants, animals, and the soil.

How can we help the nitrogen cycle?

Posted on 9th June, 2022 by Luke Barclay

Other innovations could help reduce the amount of nitrogen that is carried away from the plants and into the water. Reducing the gas emissions from soils and water systems could be one of the innovations.

Humans affect the water carbon and nitrogen cycles

Posted on 9th June, 2022 by Luke Barclay

The global carbon and nitrogen cycles are being altered by human activities. The burning of fossil fuels is changing the global carbon cycle by increasing the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere.

How is the nitrogen cycle affected by global warming?

Posted on 8th June, 2022 by Luke Barclay

Global warming is caused by increased carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The nitrogen cycle begins with nitrogen gas in the atmosphere and goes through nitrogen-fixing organisms to plants, animals, and the soil.

How is the nitrogen cycle related to ammoniafication?

Posted on 8th June, 2022 by Luke Barclay

Ammonification is the last step of the nitrogen cycle involving an organic compound. This is the first one.

The Nitrogen Cycle Plantary Boundary can be changed by individuals

Posted on 7th June, 2022 by Luke Barclay

We enter into a danger zone if the boundary is crossed. The risk of crossing thresholds that cause abrupt environmental change within continental- to planetary-scale systems makes transgressing one or more planetary boundaries highly damaging or even catastrophic.

How are plants involved in the nitrogen cycle?

Posted on 2nd June, 2022 by Luke Barclay

Plants absorb nitrogen and nitrate during the process of conversion to organic compounds. Animals can’t absorb nitrates on their own. They get their supplies from consuming plants or animals.

Why do we need the nitrogen cycle?

Posted on 1st June, 2022 by Luke Barclay

The nitrogen cycle helps bring in nitrogen from the air into plants and animals. The nitrogen cycle is very important for plants.
