NITROGREN CYCLE

BY DESTINY BAEZ AND ALYSSA ALVARADO

NITROGEN CYCLE IS...

The continual movement of nitrogen among Earth's organisms, waters, rocks, minerals, and atmosphere. Nitrogen is an essential component in the formation of amino acids and proteins as well as nucleic acids.

PROCESS OF THE NITROGEN CYCLE

- Nitrogen Fixation begins the nitrogen cycle. It is the process in which the soil breaks down to N2 and nitrogen found in dead organic matter and convert it into either nitrate or ammonia.

- Ammonium is then formed into nitrites.

- Then, nitrites turns to nitrates which is in the plant.

- Nitrate then rises to water change and then forms to food for the fish which goes back to ammonium and starts the nitrogen cycle over again.
