Explain how the phosphorus cycle differs from the carbon cycle.

The phosphorus cycle differs from the carbon cycle by the phosphorus being an essential element in molecules which carries energy to plant and animal cells. The phosphorus helps plants with root development, stem strength, and seed production. The carbon cycle plays an important role in the lives of organisms. All living things contain billions of carbon atoms in cells. Carbon is an essential component in the chemical reactions. These chemical reactions sustain life like cellular respiration.
