1

C3

3-Carbon, Light dependent reactions and carbon reactions happen at the same time, in the same cell.

2

Evapotranspiration

Water evaporates and pulls water from ground

3

C4

4-carbon, separated in space from other reactions, two cells

4

CAM

Intermediate carbon storage as acid, separated in time from light dependent and calvin cycle reactions

5

Stomata open (CAM)

Night time, water loss minimized, CO2 fixed into 4-carbon organic acid

6

Stomata closed (CAM)

Day time, Calvin cycle converts CO2 into 3-carbon organic moecule
