34. Forests and Nutrient Cycles

Description

Examiners commonly set questions which test students ability to apply their knowledge of the C and N cycle to forest ecosystems. Examiners like these questions because students often:
1. Struggle with the key facts of the N cycle.
2. Find it difficult to apply their knowledge of these cycles to unfamiliar situations.

This Environmental Studies Factsheet explains:
• Biological significance of forests.
• Nitrification.
• Crop growth.
