E D C B A ence of phage-resistant cells. Each row represents a new generation derived from the corresponding parent culture. Spheres colored blue indicate that the All nitrogen that supports life comes from Earth’s atmosphere (N 2 ). Dinitrogen is stable due to the energy necessary to break the nitrogen-nitrogen triple bond. Prokaryotes carry out unique and important steps in the nitrogen cycle. The steps in the nitrogen cycle that are performed by microbes are marked with a circle-containing microbes and letter. With this information answer the following questions.
