Carbon cycle

Year: 2009 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Living systems play a vital role in the carbon cycle. Photosynthesising organisms – mostly plants on land and various kinds of algae and bacteria in the sea – use either atmospheric carbon dioxide or that dissolved in sea water as the basis for the complex organic carbon compounds that are essential for life.
