Abstract

For this module's Capstone Activity, we will be examining the idea of Carbon Credits. In the first two weeks of this laboratory module you saw how vegetation can sequester carbon in its tissues, and how the processes of photosynthesis and respiration affect the cycling of carbon dioxide. By integrating these activities with the carbon dioxide calculator exercise, you will determine the number of trees that would be needed to offset your personal carbon dioxide emissions. Complete the activities and questions on the Capstone Activity sheet.
