List the three nutrient cycles present in an ecosystem.
Nutrient cycles are also called as biogeochemical cycles as they help convert the elemental form of essential minerals into biochemical form for utilization by living organisms. The three important nutrient cycles of the ecosystem are the carbon cycle, the nitrogen cycle and the phosphorous cycle.
Nitrogen has a vast atmospheric abundance but is not present in a useable form for many organisms. Nitrogen fixers convert nitrogen into ammonium and nitrates to be taken up by plants and passed onto animals.
Phosphorous is the integral part of the building blocks of nucleic acids, ATP and lipids that make up the
