Phototrophic Bacteria The photosynthetic or phototropic bacteria are a group of independent, self supporting microbes. These bacteria synthesize useful substances from secretions of roots, organic matter and/or harmful gases (eg. hydrogen sulfide), by using sunlight and the heat of soil as sources of energy. Useful substances developed by these microbes include amino acids, nucleic acids, bioactive substances and sugars, all of which promote plant growth and development. The metabolites developed by these microorganisms are absorbed directly into plants and act as substrates for increasing beneficial populations. B. Lactic Acid Bacteria Lactic acid bacteria produce lactic acid from sugars and other carbohydrates, developed by photosynthetic bacteria and yeast.

Global nitrogen pollution: nitrate build up from soils to the sea (by Philip Taylor) The creation of nitrogen fertilizers have greatly benefited humans by increasing crop yields and ensuring food security in many areas of the world. While some places need more fertilizer, like much of sub-Sahara Africa, many places are rife with nitrogen. The overabundance of nitrogen, particularly nitrates, creates a host of environmental problems, including dead zone formation, elevation of infectious disease, drive harmful algal blooms, enhance greenhouse gas emissions, among other negative consequences. The challenge ahead is maximize the obvious benefits while minimizing the damaging effects of nitrogen use. Here, I briefly describe findings presented in a paper published in the journal Nature ("Stoichiometric control of organic carbon-nitrate relationships from soils to the sea", April 22nd issue, 2010) that explains how nitrate accumulates from soils to the seas across earth's biomes. Our findings represent a new framework to understand the fate of nitrate in ecosystems worldwide, which could help management strategies targeting nitrogen pollution. Visit and http for more information on nitrogen related issues. Also, visit my personal website, for more detailed information about my work in nitrogen pollution. Bio: I am currently a Ph.D. student at University of Colorado, Boulder in the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research and the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.

Nitrogen cycle 1 Check us out at The nitrogen cycle is the process by which nitrogen is converted between its various chemical forms. This transformation can be carried out via both biological and non-biological processes. Important processes in the nitrogen cycle include fixation, mineralization, nitrification, and denitrification. The majority of Earth's atmosphere (approximately 78-80%) is nitrogen, making it the largest pool of nitrogen. However, atmospheric nitrogen is unavailable for biological use, leading to a scarcity of usable nitrogen in many types of ecosystems. The nitrogen cycle is of particular interest to ecologists because nitrogen availability can affect the rate of key ecosystem processes, including primary production and decomposition. Human activities such as fossil fuel combustion, use of artificial nitrogen fertilizers, and release of nitrogen in wastewater have dramatically altered the global nitrogen cycle Nitrogen is essential for many processes; it is crucial for any life on Earth. It is in all amino acids, is incorporated into proteins, and is present in the bases that make up nucleic acids, such as DNA and RNA. In plants, much of the nitrogen is used in chlorophyll molecules, which are essential for photosynthesis and further growth. Although earths atmosphere is an abundant source of nitrogen, most is relatively unusable by plants Chemical processing, or natural fixation (through processes such as bacterial conversion--see rhizobium), are ...

Nitrogen Fixation (It's a Sensation) Our music video for AP Environmental Science Cole Hankins Alex Donnan Allison Palmer Chandni Patel Lyrics: Nitrogen fixiation is occurin under ground in bacteria that happen to live all around. They fix it to be assimilated by the plants, some of which are woven right into your pants. They get it most from dead stuff, now isn't that nice? Decomposing to NH4, NO2, and NO3. Ammonification is what that is called. (The decomposition if you wondered at all.) Decomposers (surprise!) do all the dirty work, literally. It's going back into the dirt! Nitrification is where bacteria take power, convert ammonium to nitrate over and over. NH4, NO2, and NO3, chemical abbrevs for simplicity. Legumes, or beans, filled with that stuff, harvested and never getting back to earth. Denitrification is the last of it all, followed by the anaerobic ammonium oxidation. In anaerobic places bacteria wrap up the cycle, making gas from the nitrogen that's left over. But waste water dumping and digging up legumes might mean the environment is doomed! No need to worry though, there's plenty to do. Like not digging up the legumes... Clean air and water acts by the USA help with pollution from plants... industrial plants! By cleaning up our actions we can all help, cleaning the N cycle and saving the planet.

Logging in the Amazon Deforestation in the Amazon is a very real problem with large losses of biodiversity, carbon sequestration, and oxygen production. Some of the main causes of deforestation are forest conversion to pastureland for the short economic gain involved in the cattle industry. The soil of the amazon is not a very good soil and depends heavily on the nitrification and nutrient load that a closed forest system provides. When a forest is clearcut cattle can be raised and grazed on this land for several year s but then it is left so depleted it will require high fertilizer inputs to be production or the natural forest regeneration will occur very slowly. This is the norm of what is happening in the amazon which is continuing to lose forests at an alarming rate. It then might seem strange to hear that argument that investing in lumber companies will be one way to help save the Amazon rain forest but it is a very viable option. The current clear cutting is performed by illegal logging companies that have no investment in the land they are logging because it isn't their land. Companies like Cikel the operation shown in the video own large tracks of land that they do their logging on. This land ownership is the key to developing a sustainable logging system in Brazil. If a company only cuts the land it owns and the most expensive wood comes from tree species late in the forest regeneration cycle then there is a big investment to do selective, sustainable harvesting of lumber. By doing ...

Da Nitrogen Cycle (Gangsta rap freestyle version) With Lyrics Download link: Nitrogen makes up 78% of our air It can't be used straight for nutrience but don't despair. There is a way that nature converts it to be used We call it the nitrogen cycle, don't get confused. THE NITROGEN CYCLE!! THE NITROGEN CYCLE This cycle has five main areas They all have similar names so you kinda get hysteria Fixation, Nitrification, then there's assimilation Now I have two more Ammonification DE NI TRI FI CA TION Now see here, Fixation's where we start N turns into Ammonia, man it's ART This is acheived by nitrogen fixing bacteria Nothing seems to rhyme with this, so, uh. . . NIGERIA. N2 plus H2 gets NH3 It kind of makes no sense. . . But DON'T DISAGREE Fixation is what the gangsta's talk about You wish you were us, but you're not, so SHUT YO MOUTH!! THE NITROGEN CYCLE! THE NITROGEN CYCLE!! Nitrification is what we're gonna talk next You might say that this is a little less complex Soil converts ammonia to an ion of nitrate And being extracted up by a plant is it's fate. And soon after that we got assimillation Where the plant takes the ions and makes a new creation. Like Amino Acids, Proteins and DNA Animals eat the plants and be like "YEAH YAY!!" Ammonification is a little bit Macabre Soil gets nitrogen back by dead bods. (bodies) This all decomposes into inorganic compounds Trust, this, I, too, found a little bit profound THE NITROGEN CYCLE!

Green Cane Trash Blanket with Chris Hesp Chris Hesp explains that the long rows and flat conditions of typical Burdekin farms makes it difficult to cut green and flood irrigate. Most of the farmers in his area have tried trash blanketing, however the cane tends to get waterlogged, and turns yellow from fertiliser loss due to de-nitrification. So the idea is to rake every second row and get the flood irrigation water through quicker.
