Hi! I am Nitrogen in the atmosphere. Now I am going to tell you about my journey on Nitrogen Cycle.
When I got into the soil, I met legume plant. Then the bacteria in the legume plant combined me with hydrogen and I turned in to Ammonia(NH4+). And this process is called Nitrogen Fixation.
To help the growth of plants, I became Nitrate through the process called Nitrification. And the bacteria in legume plant and soil helped me to become Nitrate.
One of the herbivores called Rabbit ate the legume plant that I was absorbed in as a Nitrate.
After few years, the Rabbit that ate me died so the fungi and bacteria Decomposed the rabbit and me. Thus I turned back in to Ammonia and Nitrites (NO2). This process in called Decomposition
Through the process called Denitrification, I was broken down into Nitrogen gas (N2) by anaebolic bacteria. Then I am back to the atmosphere.
