Readers will discover that the natural element, carbon, is found in all living things, including people. This book explains how the Earth's supply of carbon moves among Earth's oceans, atmosphere, ecosystems and geosphere in a process called the carbon cycle. Detailed diagrams and an experiment help explain photosynthesis, respiration and how human activities can disrupt the cycle's balance.
