Transcript of Phosphorus Cycle
Lakes, Oceans, Soil, and Sedimentary rock.
Organic: The Guano hills before the coast of Peru that developed through the accumulation of bird poo.
Inorganic: Phosphate in the form of apatite. Inorganic and organic reservoirs Phosphate (PO4–3) is released into the ecosystem as the result of weathering and erosion.
Phosphorus is changed into deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA). Adenosine phosphate (ATP), one of the nucleotides that make up DNA and RNA, is also the main energy transfer molecule in the multitude of chemical reactions taking place within organisms. Chemical reactions We take away large amounts of phosphate and use it in fertilizers.
We reduce the amount of phosphorus in tropical soils by clearing away forests.
Eutrophication, which is the natural process by which lakes, rivers. streams, etc. receive excess nutrients that cause excessive plant growth, can occur due to the runoff of excess phosphate from fields and such. Human Impact
