The functions of the following bioelements in living beings: Carbon: Carbon is a chemical element, like hydrogen, oxygen, lead or any of the others in the periodic table. Carbon is a very abundant element. It exists in pure or nearly pure forms – such as diamonds and graphite – but can also combine with other elements to form molecules. These carbon-based molecules are the basic building blocks of humans, animals, plants, trees and soils. Some greenhouse gases, such as CO2 and methane, also consist of carbon-based molecules, as do fossil fuels, which are largely made up of hydrocarbons (molecules consisting of hydrogen and carbon). Hydrogen: Hydrogen is the chemical element with the symbol H and atomic number 1.
