I think that one way is in the form of ATP, natural resources provided by humans (PO32-)....
how will it affect the environment
Well, if it is in the form of ATP, it will provide energy for an organism allowing it to proceed with it's natural biological cycles such as cellular respiration, glycolysis, oxidative phosphorylation, etc.,
ok well thanks for the help
Yeah. My bad, I am just unsure of this but I am just trying to give the bigger picture because when I think phosphates in biology, I think ATP (energy) since phosphate is really more often discussed in chemistry/ biochemistry. Just keeping that in mind.
ok and thanks again i appreciate it.
i) Considerable amount of phosphorus from the soil rock is washed into the sea by rains and floods (an estimated amount of 2 million tonnes of phosphotic rock is lost to sea) where sea weeds take up phosphorus and is then passed onto fishes and sea birds. ii) Terrestrial plants absorb phosphorus as phosphate ions (orthophosphate ions) from the soil. iii) Animals obtain phosphates by consuming plants as food (as organic phosphate through the food chain)
