  • Carbon dioxide in air
    • plants
      • During photosynthesis plants absorb carbon dioxide and convert it into carbon compounds
      • Fossil Fuels
        • dead organism that are not broken down by decomposers eventually make fossil fuels. oil , coal
        • Animals
          • Decomposers
            • Respiration in plants, animals and decomposers release carbon into the air as carbon dioxide gas.
        • we burn fossil fuels(combustion) they release carbon in them back into the air as carbon dioxide.
      • dead plants and animals are eaten by decomposers, such as bacteria and fungi.
      • carbon compounds in plants are passed to animals when they eat the plants, and from animal to animal along the food chain.
