Question:

How does carbon enter the biotic parts of the biosphere during the carbon cycle?

Answer:

Carbon, in the form of carbon dioxide, enters living things from the nonliving environment when plants and other producers photosynthesize. Carbon returns to the environment when living things respire, are decomposed, or are burned (combustion)!
