Best Answer

It is an integral part of the water cycle, the carbon cycle and the nitrogen cycle. It is the medium for plant growth, which is the basis for all food energy in an ecosystem (with the exception of some ecosystems that are dependent on chemotrophs).

Fertile soils mean abundant plant growth, provided the climate is hospitable, which means abundant animal life is also possible due to food and habitat availability.
