Carbon Cycle series of processes by which carbon compounds are INTER CONVERTED in the environment, involving the incorporation of carbon dioxide into living tissue by photosynthesis and its return to the atmosphere through respiration, the decay of dead organisms, and the burning of fossil fuels.

chemical reactions: photosynthesis: 6CO2 + 6H2O ------> C6H12O6 + 6O2, respiration: carbon moving from living things into the atmosphere

components: inorganic: water, plants, animals organic: carbon, glucose

human impact: deforestation, urbanization, burning of fossil fuels
