Use of Nitrogen-13 and Nitrogen-15 in Studies on the Dissimilatory Fate of Nitrate
Nitrate is a central nitrogen species in the biogeochemical nitrogen cycle because it is mobile, a biological oxidant, and a nitrogen source fpr growth for many organisms. As a result it has many competing fates as illustrated in Figure 1.
