A large part of water percolated into the ground and is available to us in the form of groundwater.

Growth of lichens on barren rocks is followed by the growth of
Why is it difficult to integrate nitrogen gas from the atmosphere in the nitrogen cycle of the biosphere?
The process of nitrogen-fixation by bacteria does not take place in the presence of
