fossil fuels If burned, coal and oil will release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
waste When animals digest food they are able to add nitrogen into the soil by removing their digest food from their bodies.

Roots This is found on an autotroph and has nodules, which have a symbiotic relationship with nitrogen fixing bacteria
autotrophs This organism is able to produce its own energy.
heterotrophs This organism has to consume other organisms to gain energy for it's cells.
Glucose. This molecule is the main source of energy for most organisms.
Carbon Dioxide This molecule travels into the atmosphere, and is taken up by plants, and it is released by animals.
