Write important features of a sedimentary cycle in an ecosystem.
The important features of a sedimentary cycle in an ecosystem are following:
1. Elements such as sulphur, phosphorus, potassium, and calcium have sedimentary cycles and their reservoirs is in the Earth’s crust or rocks.
2. Sedimentary cycles are very slow as they take a long time to complete their circulation. During recycling the nutrient elements get locked in the reservoir pool, thereby taking a long time to come out and continue circulation.
3. Rock minerals once released into the soil solution do not return to the rock itself.
