The global fluxes of carbon in the ecosystem of Earth, with particular attention drawn to the cycle of CO2 were characterised. The sequestration of carbon dioxide in the biomass of plants, especially the ones which can be cultivated as catch crops is described. It was shown that the cultivation of catch crops may play an important role in the mitigation of CO2 emissions.
