Nitrogen Generation Units

The characteristic odor of animal flesh decay is triggered by nitrogen-containing lengthy-chain amines, such as putrescene and cadaverine. The decay of organisms and their waste items could make little amounts of nitrate, but most decay processes at some point return nitrogen content to the atmosphere, as molecular nitrogen. Some plants can assimilate nitrogen directly describes it in the type of nitrates, which could be present in the soil from natural mineral deposits, artificial fertilizers, animal waste, or organic decay . Nitrates absorbed in this fashion are converted to nitrites by the enzyme nitrate reductase, and then converted to ammonia by...
