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
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 and water can bond to form Nitrate
The Nitrate then goes back into the plants roots
