What is the basic role of CO2 in photosynthesis?
CO2 is fixed or incorporated into organic molecules.
True or False: The Calvin cycle has three phases: carbon fixation, reduction, and regeneration of RuBP.
Why are plants classified as producers?
Plants are classified as producers because they fix inorganic carbon into organic molecules.
