How can microorganisms enhance plant growth?
Plants need nitrogen. Unfortunately, gaseous nitrogen from the air is triple bonded and entering the soil thus make it unusable to plants because they have not way to break the triple bonds. There is a bacteria in a mutalistic, symbiotic relationship with plants and this bacteria has the proper enzymes to fix nitrogen into usable forms such as ammonia.

How is nitrogen from the atmosphere converted into a form that is usable for organisms?
Nitrogen is taken to the soil by several methods: Legumes fix atmospheric nitrogen in nodules on their roots Lightning combines atmosheric nitrogen with oxygen. The nitrate formed is taken to the soil by rain Animal protein decomposes to release nitrogen. Some is released as ammonia which may be removed from the air by rainfall.

Does composting relate to the Nitrogen Cycle If so how?
Micro organisms use the ammonia from rotting food waste in a compost pile to create nitrogen that is available for plants to absorb. In a compost pile, rotting food produces ammonia and bacteria transform it into a soil nutrient, a process called nitrogen fixing. Legumes (beans) form nodules on their roots which accept nitrogen from the air and fix it in the soil through the nodules. So yes, a compost pile is part of the nitrogen cycle. It is the habitat for essential microorganisms to convert the nitrogen in ammonia into the nitrogen that plants can use to grow. The compost pile is also part of the carbon cycle in which carbon from living organisms breaks down and is converted into soil and used to build the cells of other plants. The compost pile does not demonstrate the full cycle of nitrogen or carbon, but it plays a part.
Asked in Biology
How do living organism get nitrogen?
it depends on which living organisms you are talking about. Plants absorb it through their roots in the form of nitrate (NO3) or ammonia (NH4) or in the case of Nitrogen-fixing plants, they host a bacterial infection which undergoes di-nitrogen fixation within a nodule and makes the nitrogen for the plant. Many types of bacteria and other microorganisms possess the ability to fix atmospheric N2, which eukaryotes in general cannot do. Animals in general get their nitrogen by consuming other organisms or organic material.
