carbon cycle vocabulary

Carbon Cycle Vocabulary

Carbon: an abundant element that combines with oxygen and hydrogen to form the organic compounds that make up organisms

Carbon Cycle: the flow of carbon in the form of carbon dioxide molecules between the earth’s surface and atmosphere.

carbon cycle vocabulary1

Carbon Cycle Vocabulary

Consumers: Organisms, primarily animals, that get their food from producers. They feed on green plants or on other animals that eat plants.

Decomposers: A specific type of consumer that feeds on dead plant or animal matter. Examples are bacteria and fungi.

Carbon Cycle Vocabulary
  • Fossil Fuels: the carbon-rich matter from plants and animals that has been trapped in the earth’s crust and can be burned to release energy. Examples are coal, gas, and oil.
  • Greenhouse Effect: The trapping of reflected heat from the sun by earth’s atmosphere, especially carbon dioxide. An increase in the amount of carbon dioxide may result in a warming of the earth.

Carbon Cycle Vocabulary
  • Photosynthesis: The food-making process of the natural world. Plant use energy from the sun, water and nutrients to make their own food.
  • Producers: Green plants that produce food by photosynthesis.
