Biogeochemical cycles are natural processes that involve the circulation of chemical elements between living and non-living components of the environment. An important example of a biogeochemical cycle is the carbon cycle, which directly affects life on Earth. How can human interference negatively impact the carbon cycle?
Burning fossil fuels increases the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, intensifying the greenhouse effect.
Planting trees reduces the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, decreasing the greenhouse effect.
Preserving forests increases the amount of organic matter in the soil, facilitating carbon cycling.
Building water reservoirs reduces the amount of methane in the atmosphere, reducing the greenhouse effect.
Promoting the use of solar and wind energy reduces the demand for fossil fuels, slowing down the carbon cycle.

Question 2:


The sulfur cycle is an important part of global biogeochemistry, as it involves the movement of large amounts of this chemical element between living organisms and the environment. Sulfur is essential for life, as it is present in various molecules, such as organic acids and amino acids, and is responsible for important biological functions, such as the formation of connective tissues and the transport of oxygen in the blood. Which of these processes is not part of the sulfur cycle?
