Natural (Nutrient) Cycles
C, N, and P
(we need a relatively large amount)
Carbon “moves” from the atmosphere as carbon dioxide
(CO2) to Plants as sugar (C6H12O6).
Processes - that put N into a usable form.
Takes place in the Atmosphere & Lithosphere.
Take place primarily in the hydrosphere & lithosphere.
