BioGeochemical Cycles

Water, CO2, and N Cycles

Lightning loss of water from the leaves and stems of plants
respiration these break down animal wastes and dead organisms to recycle the elements.
decomposers 78 percent of our atmosphere
carboncycle the movement of carbon through the environment
Bacteria CO2 traps infrared radiation; if CO2 levels continue to rise we will have severe...
fossilfuel energy-rich carbon compound formed from organic matter by long-term geologic processes; example = petroleum
AminoAcids the building blocks of proteins; these molecules contain Nitrogen
nitrogengas this event can directly convert N2 in the air to NO3 - ; the NO3 - dissolves in rainwater and goes to the soil.
photosynthesis These are nitrogen-fixing____ ; some convert N2 from the air to ammonia; others convert ammonia to nitrates..
Transpiration O2 from air and glucose from food react inside our cells to produce CO2 and H2O; sort of the reverse process of photosynthesis
globalwarming Can be absorbed in the plant roots; used to make amino acids.
