1. Describes the process of when plants and animals uptake the elements into their body.
2. Refers to the soil or the Earth
3. The biogeochemical processes are to help conserve this.
4. How many biogeochemical cycles are there?
5. When plants and animals die, the tissue undergoes this process.
6. Refers to the air.

11. Plants and certain zooplankton use this process to transport carbon dioxide from the air to the lithosphere.
12. The phosphorous cycle does not include this abiotic environment.
13. These man-made industrial structures are responsible for putting sulfur dioxide and other chemicals into the atmosphere.
