THE CARBON CYCLE IN THE COURSE OF STUDY RELATED TO THE BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE AT VARIOUS LEVEL

DR. ASHWANI KUMAR GUPTA

Abstract

Chief available sources of carbon is the Carbon-dioxide of the atmosphere which is also dissolved in the water of all type resources  fresh water as well as marine water, it is only the green plants that can make use of carbon dioxide in photosynthesis for producing food. The decomposers, i.e. bacteria and fungi etc. also help returning carbon-dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere and water in the soil by acting chemically upon the remains of dead animals and plants and their wastes, such as urine and faeces. The carbon / carbon dioxide cycle shows the interdependency among organisms, and natural environment. This is also essential knowledge for every body studying the biology at various levels.
