    Hi Tom,

    do plants have uptake pathways for taking in carbon sources other than HCO3-, CO2 and well, Glutaraldehyde of course? I was thinking about CO3-- and H2CO3.

    No.

    Not that are brought into the calvin cycle.
    Excel etc decomposes to CO2 anyway.
    HCO3, is convertyed via CA enzyme to CO2 + -OH
    H2CO3 is very tiny fractions and too big to use, most is CO2 [aq].

    Regards,
    Tom Barr
