• soils
  • However, both the exchange of CH4 and N2O strongly depended on plant community composition, and on the interaction of composition with soil type, indicating that the functional role of species and their interactions differed between soils. (uzh.ch)

  • Because of this relationship, legumes will often increase the nitrogen content of nitrogen-poor soils. (wikipedia.org)
  • In aerobic soils where nitrification can occur, nitrate is usually the predominant form of available nitrogen that is absorbed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Anthropogenic sources of nitrogen are 50% greater than from natural sources, such as, soils and oceans. (wikipedia.org)
  • photosynthesis
  • According to many textbooks, carbohydrates are the photosynthesis and mitochondrial respiration fluctuate in a circadian manner in almost every unique final products of plant photosynthesis. (springer.com)
  • Green plants have cell walls containing cellulose and obtain most of their energy from sunlight via photosynthesis by primary chloroplasts, derived from endosymbiosis with cyanobacteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • Outside of formal scientific contexts, the term "plant" implies an association with certain traits, such as being multicellular, possessing cellulose, and having the ability to carry out photosynthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • fungi
  • Since then, it has become clear that the plant kingdom as originally defined included several unrelated groups, and the fungi and several groups of algae were removed to new kingdoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • interactions
  • Because soil methanotrophs may take longer to respond to alterations of N cycling than the 1/2 year treatment in this study, we also tested species richness-effects in two separate 5-year field studies, but results were ambiguous, indicating complex interactions with soil disturbance. (uzh.ch)
  • nitrogenase
  • At room temperature, vanadium nitrogenase is less efficient at fixing nitrogen than moldybdenum nitrogenases because it converts more H+ to H2 as a side reaction. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, at low temperatures vanadium nitrogenases have been found to be more active than the molybdenum type, and at temperatures as low as 5 °C its nitrogen-fixing activity is 10 times higher than that of molybdenum nitrogenase. (wikipedia.org)
  • legumes
  • A group of University of Kentucky scientists have discovered a more efficient way for legumes to fix nitrogen. (phys.org)
  • processes
  • 5 This study presents empirical evidence that suggests coastal marsh/upland ecotones harbour increased diversity and may concentrate nitrogen pools, thereby highlighting the need for further research investigating the relationship between landscape connections and the coupling of species and biogeochemical processes. (wiley.com)
  • The processes of the nitrogen cycle transform nitrogen from one form to another. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many of those processes are carried out by microbes, either in their effort to harvest energy or to accumulate nitrogen in a form needed for their growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • The diagram besides shows how these processes fit together to form the nitrogen cycle. (wikipedia.org)
  • fertilizer
  • With an innovative modeling approach, researchers set out to examine corn and soybean yields and optimal nitrogen (N) fertilizer rates. (phys.org)
  • Regional increases of nitrogen fertilizer use are expected to be 67% by Asia, 18% by the Americas, 10% by Europe, 3% by Africa,and 1% by Oceania. (wikipedia.org)

  • aquarium
  • An improper nitrogen cycle, inappropriate aquarium plants and potentially harmful freshwater invertebrates can directly harm or add to the stresses on ornamental fish in a tank. (wikipedia.org)
  • In recent years, one of the most active advocates of the heavily planted aquarium was the Japanese aquarist Takashi Amano. (wikipedia.org)

  • animals
  • The first definition expresses the phrase in terms of non-indigenous species (e.g. plants or animals) that adversely affect the habitats they invade economically, environmentally or ecologically. (thefullwiki.org)
  • It is most likely a combination of several mechanisms that cause an invasive situation to occur, since most introduced plants and animals do not become invasive. (thefullwiki.org)
  • Such invasive species may be either plants or animals and may disrupt by dominating a region, wilderness areas, particular habitats, or wildland-urban interface land from loss of natural controls (such as predators or herbivores). (wikipedia.org)
  • The division goes back at least as far as Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC), who distinguished between plants, which generally do not move, and animals, which often are mobile to catch their food. (wikipedia.org)
  • The strong bond between the atoms of N2 makes this gas quite inert and not directly usable by plants and animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • ecosystem
  • Experiments addressing the role of plant species diversity for ecosystem functioning have recently proliferated. (uzh.ch)
