  • The Phosphorus Cycle
  • Ashley Tran Period 5 11/5/17
  • Wind and rain erode phosphate rich rocks
  • Rivers carry gravel and silt to water bodies
  • Plants absorb phosphate from soil, animals eat the plants. Decomposers, such as fungi (mushrooms) then break down plant and animal matter into soil
  • Human Impacts
  • Silt becomes sediment (rocks settles to the bottom of the liquid), then new rock; Phosphorus in the soil from decomposers leeches into water bodies
  • Geological uplift later pushes new rock onto the surface
  • People cut down trees and kill animals, reducing the process of phosphorus going into soil
