What are C3 plants? (Second word is Calvin Cycle? Although C4 plants also use Calvin Cycle with different precursor molecules.)

C3 is right, the other phrase I was going for is “cool season.” Not sure about “different precursor molecules,” both use CO2 and H2O in photosynthesis to make C6H12O6 (glucose), O2, and H2O. I certainly didn’t remember this from school, but you’re right, both C3 and C4 plants use the Calvin Cycle, but the warm season plants make a fourth carbon through the “Hatch-Slack Pathway.”

The board is yours.
