It seems that everyone here is being an overachiever…from the looks of it so far, no one has reused the same item again with a different organism (at least, not many). BUT IT’S ALLOWED. So I’ll be the first 🙂
In C3 plants, CO2 (gained from the air) and RuBP go through the carbon fixation pathway, catalyzed by the enzyme rubisco, to form the 3 carbon compound, phosphoglycerate. After making the 3 carbon compound, it is sent into the Calvin Cycle. Due to their constant need for open stomata in order to obtain the CO2 from the air, C3 plants lose large amounts of water and cannot thrive in hot and arid climates (contrary to C4 and CAM plants). They need an abundant amount of ground water and CO2 as well as moderate temperatures to successfully carry out this process. The picture shows flour which is produced by a C3 plant called wheat. Some examples of C3 plants are wheat, barley, rice, and other grains.
