A nutrient cycle refers to the movement and exchange of the particular nutrient throughout an ecosystem, cyclically going through various stages of becoming a part of matter and freely present in the environment. A decay cycle only refers to such a system where a nutrient is involved in decomposition at some point. For example, both the nitrogen and water cycle are considered nutrient cycles, but only the nitrogen cycle contains a decay cycle within it.
