What would that mean for life on Earth? Explain. (new scenario) What would happen to the Nitrogen moving though the nitrogen cycle if all of the denitrifying bacteria disappeared today? What would that mean for life on Earth? Explan. (new scenario) What would happen to the Nitrogen moving though the nitrogen cycle if all of the decomposers disappeared today? What would that mean for life on Earth? Explan. **Conclusion: Bacteria rule the world!** Science of Curiosity 78% 21% O2 0.035% CO2 78% Nitrogen Without denitrification, however, the Earth's supply of nitrogen would eventually accumulate in the oceans, since nitrates are highly soluble and are continuously leached from the soil into nearby bodies of water.
Unit 1 - The Living World: Ecosystems TOPIC 1.6 The Phosphorus Cycle ENDURING UNDERSTANDING ERT-1 Ecosystems are the result of biotic and abiotic interactions. LEARNING OBJECTIVE ERT-1.F Explain the steps and reservoir interactions in the phosphorus cycle. ESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE ERT-1.F.1 The phosphorus cycle is the movement of atoms and molecules containing the element phosphorus between sources and sinks. ERT-1.F.2 The major reservoirs of phosphorus in the phosphorus cycle are rock and sediments that contain phosphorus-bearing minerals. ERT-1.F.3 There is no atmospheric component in the phosphorus cycle, and the limitations this imposes on the return of phosphorus from the ocean to land make phosphorus naturally scarce in aquatic and many terrestrial ecosystems. In undisturbed ecosystems, phosphorus is the limiting factor in biological systems. The primary reservoir for phosphorus is _________________. How does phosphorus leave this reservoir and become available to plants? How does phosphorus make it back to its primary reservoir?
