Carbon Cycle

What is the Carbon Cycle?

Carbon dioxide is absorbed by producers to make carbohydrates in photosynthesis.

Carbon enters the atmosphere as carbon dioxide from either respiration (breathing) or burning (combustion).

What are the steps?

Carbon (C) is the basis of life on Earth. 99.9% of all organisms on the planet to be carbon based whether by sugar or carbon dioxide. Unlike energy, carbon is continuously cycled and reused. The Earth only has a fixed amount of carbon. The carbon cycle is the ultimate form of recycling.

If the carbon cycle was to get out of whack, it would have severe consequences such as global warming or climate change.

The carbon cycle is SO important because too much carbon will deplete the atmosphere.

The carbon cycle is the biogeochemical cycle by which carbon is exchanged among the biosphere, pedosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere of Earth. The carbon cycle compromises a sequence of events that are key to making the earth capable of sustaining life.

Unlike energy, carbon is continuously cycled and reused. The Earth only has a fixed amount of carbon. The carbon cycle is the ultimate form of recycling.

Animlas feed on the plants. Thus passing the carbon compound along the food chain. Most of the carbon these animals consume is ehaled as carbon dioxide.The plants and animlas then eventually die.

The dead organisms are eaten by decomposers in the ground. The carbon was in their bodies is now returned to the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. The decomposed animals can then be used as fossil fuels.
