  • Animals use consumption to eat plants and get protein & nucleic acids
  • Plant roots absorb nitrogen through Assimilation
  • Animals poop and/or die and the bodies are broken down into ammonia that enters the soil
  • Nitrifying bacteria breaks ammonia into nitrate
  • Nitrate
  • Nitrifying bacteria
  • Assimilation
  • Nitrate
  • Nitrogengas
  • Nitrogen atoms are found in the atmosphere as nitrogen gas
  • Nitrogen gas can be broken apart by lightning.
  • Nitrogen atoms attach to oxygen gas to form Nitrite
  • Nitrite
  • Nitrite and water can bond to form Nitrate
  • Nitrate
  • The Nitrate then goes back into the plants roots
