  • The Phosphorus Cycle  
  • The Phosphorus cycles is the key to life on this planet. Phosphorus is released through rocks by rain overtime.
  • The phosphorus is then taken in by the soil and plants take up the phosphorus from the soil. 
  • Animals then get the plants taking in the phosphate from the plants.   
  • Phosphate is then incorporated into the DNA molecule. Without Phosphate we would not be able to make our DNA molecule.   
  • When the animal dies then his decomposed body will released phosphate into the soil. Then plants will used that to grow and the cycle repeats itself.
  • Humans had impacted the phosphorus cycle by adding fertilizers to corps and having animals on their farm. Due to the fertilizers being on the farm it can lead to run off to near by rivers. Causing algal to bloom which will then kill all the fishes and plants in the river.
