Figure 4

The cycles of C, N, S, H, Fe and As are described above. Colours represent different parts of the individual cycles. Arrows indicate specific transformations. Numbers and percentages on arrows indicate the number of organisms inferred to be able to perform the transformation, and their total relative abundance in the microbial community, respectively. For groundwater, only natural unamended samples collected on the 0.2 μm filter were considered. DNRA, dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium.
