FEATURES OF A SEDIMENTARY CYCLE IN AN ECOSYSTEM:

  1. Sedimentary cycle pertain to Phosphorous (P), Calcium (Ca), Potassium (K), Sulphur (S) and Magnesium (Mg).
  2. The reservoir for nutrient elements is in the sediments of the earth, i.e. the lithosphere.
  3. Sedimentary cycle is very slow and takes a long time for completion.
  4. It is a less perfect system when compared to gaseous cycles as elements get locked in  the reservoir pool for long periods.
