This storyboard does not have a description.
The astonishing phosphorus cycle starts with a single raindrop, and is followed by a multitude of more.
THE PHOSPHORUS CYCLE
The rocks then release inorganic phosphate ions, which are then distributed in soils and water.
The plants that have taken up this inorganic phosphate from the soil is now consumed by this large Corgi.
Once it's inside the Corgi, the phosphate is incorporated into organic molecules such as DNA
Once Mr. Corgi decays, the organic phosphate is returned to the soil. Organic forms of phosphate can be made available to plants by bacteria that break down organic matter.
Now, there is more organic phosphate added the soil along with more amounts of phosphate left behind from other dead organisms. Yay Phosphorus!
Sadly, the end of Mr. Corgi's life has come due to his excessive eating habits.
But the cycle has been disturbed by these reckless humans chopping down all the trees!
Because of these horrible humans, the phosphorus levels have been significantly reduced and it will take a much longer time to restore these phosphorus levels. Humans can be very ignorant at times. Always be aware of the consequences of your actions, humans.
