    Nitrogen cycle Nitrogen cycle Presentation Transcript

    • Nitrogen Cycle
      • Ecology section for Physical Science
    • Nitrogen Storage
      • Nitrogen is stored in many ways ...
    • Nitrogen Storage
      • Nitrogen is found as nitrogen gas in the atmosphere
    • Nitrogen Storage
      • Nitrogen is stored in the soil as NITRATES for plants to absorb and grow larger
      • Plants can only take in nitrogen in the form of NITRATES
    • Nitrogen Storage
      • AMMONIUM - found in the soil, formed when animals and plants decompose or produce waste
    • Nitrogen Storage
      • Plants store nitrogen in the form of PROTEINS
      • Animals store nitrogen in the form of PROTEINS too.
      • PROTEINS make animals and plants bigger.
    • Nitrogen transfer
      • Before nitrogen can move from one place to another, it has to be TRANSFORMED into the correct form...
    • Nitrogen transfer
      • NITRIFICATION - forming NITRATES for plants and animals from different forms
      • Nitrogen gas => Nitrates
      • Ammonium => Nitrates
    • Nitrogen transfer
      • Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria in nodules of plant roots turn nitrogen gas into NITRATES for plants
    • Nitrogen Transfer
      • Bacteria break down plant and animal waste into ammonium in the soil
    • Nitrogen transfer
      • DENITRIFICATION - when ammonium is transformed into nitrogen gas and released into the atmosphere
    • so let ’ s put it all together
