I really want to know what the second phase of photosynthesis (in the dark) is. I have a fair understanding of the first cycle where molecular oxygen is generated under the influence of light, but I don't understand the second cycle which can take place in the dark. It would greatly help to have a graphic of the second phase of photosynthesis.
Note: it is not for my homework, but for my own understanding. My textbook doesn't explain things very well.
