If one wants to dig deep into this topic, one needs to understand its establishment i.e. its ecology and its behavior. Being nitrifying bacteria, it plays an important role in giving nitrogen to plants. If one talks about their presence and habitat, they are found generally in soil and water where the amount of ammonia is high or some of the lakes and streams which possess left untreated or treated sewage is pumped down. Nitrosomonas is such a kind of species that may perform various tasks to prevent light and to avoid light into it; this is generally done by forming clumps of slime.
Some of the findings say that it is present on walls of stone buildings and some of the surfaces of monuments due to which the stone or the material of which buildings/walls or monuments are eroded as it fixes the air nitrogen and the nitric oxide shatter the stone beneath on the building. Some of the problems posed by Nitrosomonas will be discussed later in this; firstly, let one have some more information and discussion about its genetics, its outer structure, and its significance.
Some of the studies prove that the effect of Nitrosomonas on Ammonia is positive and helpful but in agricultural practices, it can create some problems. This occurs due to the leaching of nitrate in the soil; so plants do not get much of it.
