Carbon Cycle

By: Hortencia Avila, Uriel Lopez, Jeremy Glick

carbon cycle2

Fourth most abundant element in universe

  • Building block of all living things
  • Main Pathway– in and out of living matter
Carbon Cycle
key terms

Carbon Cycle- Circulation of carbon through ecosystems

Carbon- A non-metallic element found in coal, petroleum and natural gas. Major component of life.

Soil Respiration- Carbohydrates are oxidized and returned to the air by soil microorganisms that decompose dead animals

Key Terms
key terms continued
Atmosphere- layer of gasses

Fossil Fuels- Carbon-rich fuel from ancient animals and plants

Photosynthesis- Energy (sun)+ Water+ Carbon dioxide Carbohydrates+ Oxygen

Cellular Respiration- Glucose+ Oxygen CO2+ H20+ Energy (ATP)

Decomposition- breakdown of matter by bacteria and fungi

Key Terms Continued
biological importance of carbon

All living organisms contain carbon

  • CO2 is found in all living organisms
  • Plants use carbon dioxide and water to form simple sugars (photosynthesis)
Biological Importance of Carbon
ecological importance of carbon

Carbon is needed for life

  • Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas
  • Carbon is necessary for life, but carbon dioxide can be harmful
Ecological Importance of Carbon
