The carbon cycle highlights how carbon moves from

one organism in different forms:

1 – Carbon is present in the atmosphere in the form of carbon dioxide.

      Carbon dioxide enters the atmosphere when organisms respire and

      release carbon dioxide.

 

2 – Producers take up carbon in the form of carbon dioxide through the

      process of photosynthesis. The carbon is then stored in the plant in the

      form of glucose or other carbon based molecules such as protein or fats.

 

3 – Once the produces are eaten by the consumers the carbon stored in the

      producers in the form of glucose.

 

4 – The consumers will die and are then decomposed by decomposers. This

       process is known as decay, which will occur faster in warmer and moist

       conditions and slower in cooler dry conditions.

 

5 – The decomposes then respire and release carbon in the form of carbon

       dioxide back into the atmosphere.
