Here a carbon molecule has been absorbed by a plant to be used for photosynthesis through respiration. The carbon molecule was absorbed during the plants gas exchange to create carbohydrates.
Its always nice to see new molecules move in
Hello! I am a carbon molecule!
The plant began to shed its leaves, leaving the carbon molecule to be introduced to the soil where it will be trapped or stored there while the leaf decomposes.
Man, did he take a hit.
I've only gotten this far?!!!
Here in the soil, the carbon molecule has been trapped for so long while leaves decompose that it has become a fossil fuel.
At least I can come and go out of here at my free will!
Good thing I'm not trapped down here!
When will I ever get out of here?!
*nom nom nom*
He sure did have a long fall!
The carbon molecule continues to be stored as a fossil fuel in the soil while fallen leaves are decomposing and releasing more carbon.
I feel like I've been here forever!!
Yeah, even Rabbit moved out, and I moved in
The fossil fuels begin to burn resulting in combustion, and releasing the carbon molecule into the atmosphere.
Good luck on the rest of your journey meow!
I can't believe I'm finally freed!
From the atmosphere, the carbon molecule was trapped in the moving water currents of the surface ocean. The carbon molecule will continue cycling throughout the Carbon Cycle for the rest of its natural existence.
Yay. More molecules in the sea.
Now I get to float along with ocean currents!!
How did I get up here?!
I wonder what's for breakfast
I'm so unappreciated. All I want is to be loved like carbon.
