Type of bacteria that consume nitrogen in the air and change it into a form plants can use

Nitrogen is changed into compounds that plants can use by bacteria.

Break down (or fix) nitrogen so it can be used by the plant. Plants can only use soluble nitrates, and the nitrifying bacteria changes the N2 (nitrogen in the air) into these nitrates (NO3-) that can be absorbed by the plant.

The bacteria makes the nitrogen usable for the plants and makes it able to be used by the plants

some plants have bacteria in their roots which contain nitrogen when plants want nitrogen they exchange their food made them with nitrogen. Example: pea plants contain bacteria called rhizobium which contains nitrogen

Plants cannot make protein from pure carbohydrate, because proteins contain nitrogen and sometimes sulphur. They get the nitrogen which they need from the nitrates in the soil.the bacteria called `Rhizobium `lives in the roots of legminous plants and leg. plants need nitrogen to grow pulses.The bacteria called `rhizobium` changes the atmospheric nitrogen in solution form and in return the plants give the bacteria shelter and food thus this is called a symbiotic relationship .

Nitrogen- fixing bacteria consume nitrogen in the air and change it into a for that plants can use.

Because nitrifying bacteria can fix nitrogen from the air to the plants

The plant source of Nitrogen is Nitrate. Plants acquire nitrate through the Nitrogen Cycle. Atmospheric Nitrogen is absorbed by Nitrogen-fixing bacteria. The bacteria produce Ammonia which becomes Nitrite. Nitrite becomes Nitrate, the usable form of Nitrogen for plants. Nitrate is assimilated and absorbed by plants. Plants produce amino acids and proteins that are consumed in the food chain. Whatever consumes the proteins and amino acids will eventually die and the decomposition produces ammonia which turns into the atmospheric Nitrogen at the beginning of the cycle.

Nitrogen fixing bacteria along and on the roots of plants converts gaseous nitrogen into a form that plants can absorb.

nitrogen fixing bacteria in roots of plants bacteria transforming humus to nitrate nitrogen fixing bacteria in soil lightning.

No. Plants cannot use elemental nitrogen. The nitrogen must first be fixed, either by lightning or by nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Some plants have such bacteria in their roots.

Bacteria convert atmospheric nitrogen into a nitrogen-containing ion that plants can absorb.

Nitrogen-fixating prokaryotes (such as bacteria) present in the roots of legumes and some other plants take N2 from the air and convert it to nitrogen compounds usable by plants.hello im asking you??? ur supposed to tell meNitrogen-fixating prokaryotes or bacteria-All bacteria are prokaryotes; therefore some types of bacteria are nitrogen-fixing prokaryotes. Is something not clear?Nitrogen Fixation Bacteria are the primary source in which Nitrogen Fixation is carried out. The bacteria changes N2 (unreactive element) into nitrogen compounds, which are soluble and can be absorbed.

Plants do not actually get their nitrogen from the atmosphere. They get it in compounds in the soil through their roots. Some plants form symbiotic relationships with bacteria in the soil. The bacteria draw nitrogen from the air and form nitrogen compounds. The plants can then use the nitrogen.

Plants need nitrogen to grow. They are surrounded by nitrogen in the air, but it is not in a form the plants can use. Nitrogen fixing bacteria on the roots of the plant convert (fix) the airborne nitrogen to a form the plants can use to grow.

Nitrogen fixation is the process by which bacteria remove nitrogen from the air and make it available to plants.

it affects the nitrogen cycle as the leguminous plants have nitrogen-fixing bacteria on their roots and these nitrogen-fixing bacteria help to collect nitrogen which is transferred to animals when these leguminous plants have been eaten.

fix nitrogen into the bacteria which helps plants with photosynethesis.

carnivores -> herbivores -> plants -> nitrogen fixing bacteria

Some bacteria alter nitrogen to be usable by plants

Nitrogen fixing bacteria are bacteria that convert atmospheric nitrogen gas into a form that is more usable by plants. For example, ammonia.
