the process of photosynthesis. SO FAR . . . 1. The energy acquired in the light reactions takes two forms: energetic _____ stored in the carrier _____ and energy stored in the energy transfer molecule _____. An important by-product of the light reactions is the ____ produced when water is split. 2. The energy from the light reactions is used to power the second major set of steps in photosynthesis, the ______ cycle. 3. In this cycle, an energy-poor _____ is brought together with carbon dioxide

soak up signi cant amounts of atmospheric CO2. Both the algae and the carbon within them would then sink to the bottom of the ocean when the algae die or so the proposal goes. But why do algae soak up CO2? To nd out, see Chapter 8, on photosynthesis, beginning on page 140. And what are the root causes of global warming? Chapter 36 provides some answers, beginning on page 704. He Won His Battle with Cancer, in Time s September 4 edition, was on the glacially slow progress the United States is
Biology: A Guide to the Natural World. The title arrived fairly early on, courtesy of the muse, and then stuck because it so aptly expresses what I think is special about this book. Flip through these pages, and you ll see all the elements that students and teachers look for in any modern introductory textbook rich, full-color art, an extensive study apparatus, and a full complement of digital learning tools. When you leaf slowly through the book and start to read a little of it, however, I think
