How does matter move among the living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem?
Matter = recycled
Energy = 1 way
Matter moves through the biosphere in what are called biogeochemical cycles.
Bio = life
Geo = Earth
Chemical = well…chemical
Matter can cycle through the biosphere because biological systems do not use up matter, they transform it.
*Oxygen participates in all these cycles by combining with these elements and cycling with them during various parts of their journey.
All organisms require nitrogen to make amino acids, which in turn are used to build proteins.
