BIOGEOCHEMICAL CYCLES PROJECT
Determine how water, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen cycle between abiotic resources and organic matter in the ecosystem. To do this you need to illustrate the following biogeochemical cycles:
Please use a different biome for each cycle. In other words, if you used a "grassland biome" for illustrating the water cycle, then you must use a "rainforest biome," "temperate forest biome," "coniferous forest biome," "tundra biome," "tropical savannah," or "desert biome" for illustrating each of the other three cycles. Please use a separate sheet of unlined paper to illustrate each cycle. Use the front side to illustrate the cycle and the back side to write a paragraph explaining the cycle. You do not have to use color, but it does add to the appeal of your work. You will be evaluated on the following points:
Hint: Use a wide variety of books and resources to see find the best biogeochemical cycle diagrams. You may also use the Internet. Cutting out the pictures (from computer print outs or magazines) of animals in your biome may be easier than drawing them.
