Description: The transport and transformation of substances in the environment are known collectively as biogeochemical cycles. These global cycles involve the circulation of elements and nutrients that sustain both the biological and physical aspects of the environment. As an example, this discussion centers around the carbon cycle and how carbon is sequestered in trees. Students will perform an activity that replicates a case study in which the biomass of trees in a 15-acre plot of forest was calculated to determine the amount of carbon sequestered per acre.
