Scope note: La circulación del nitrógeno en la naturaleza, que consiste en un ciclo de reacciones bioquímicas en las que se combina el nitrógeno atmosférico, se disuelve en la lluvia y se deposita en el suelo, donde es asimilado y metabolizado por animales, plantas, bacterias y hongos, y finalmente regresa a la atmósfera por la descomposición bacteriana de la materia orgánica.
