nitrogen-fixing bacteria: convert nitrogen gas in the air --> nitrates in the soil, so plants can make proteins for growth
decomposers: when plants die, these convert proteins and urea in dead plants --> ammonia gas
nitrifying bacteria: convert ammonia gas ----> back into nitrates in the soil
denitrifying bacteria: convert nitrates in the soil ----> back into nitrogen gas, and so the cycle goes on
hope that helps
