Today we explored how carbon is cycled in ecosystems. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be sure to add information to your notebook page 66 about which two substances are linked in one recycling process; what role do producers (autotrophs) play in the carbon and oxygen cycles; what role do consumers (heterotrophs) play in these cycles; and how might the death of all the producers (autotrophs) in a community affect the carbon and oxygen cycles? Be sure to include a diagram of the cycle with your notes! You can use any resources available to find this information if you are working from home (the textbook is helpful once you are back to school). Considering how valuable carbon is to all living things we are very glad to recycle this element!!! Things sure get complicated with levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the impacts to our planet. Calculate your carbon footprint!!!

Most science pictures I post are found from assorted Facebook science pages... too numerous to cite specifically and downloaded for "just the right time"... I am sorry for the poor citation example I am setting.
