  • Photosynthesis by green plants removes carbon dioxide from the air.
    • The carbon becomes part of the carbohydrates, fats and proteins in the plants' bodies
      • Carbon is transferred from plants to animals during feeding
        • Carbon is making up the bodies of animals
          • Respiration creates carbon dioxide
