Cycles in Nature

All living things depend on nitrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide in the air. We also depend on water. However, these substances do not just get used up and disappear, nature recycles them!

Four main cycles to consider are:

1. The nitrogen cycle

Nitrogen circulates between air, the soil and living things.
