Good start. A couple of comments. N cycle is biogeochemical not just chemical cycle. Also add that nitrate is then converted to N2 gas and then everything repeats itself. -Kate Scow

Great start! See if you can find some key nitrogen cycle organisms on the microbewiki and create links to their pages. Then start a page for a new microbe by using the code of an existing page as a template and editing the content. Remember to cite your sources!

I would suggest putting the microbes involved under each subheading. you can have nitrosomonas/nitrobacter and archaea under nitrification. Facultative anaerobes under denitr. Just mention breadth of organisms involved in immob/mineralization and why there is that breadth.

For global warming, you can find lots of good links for greenhouse gases. One good one would be good. Kate Scow
