1. Calvin cycle (dark reactions)
In plants, a cyclical series of carbon-fixing, sugar -producing reactions in the chloroplast s. Some of the sugars (triose phosphates) are recycled, others are stored as carbohydrate s. Light is not needed for these reactions; they use the carbon dioxide and energy produced in the light reaction s of photosynthesis .

2. Calvin cycle
(aka Calvin-Benson Cycle or Carbon fixation) Series of biochemical, enzyme -mediated reactions during which atmospheric carbon dioxide is reduced and incorporated into organic molecules, eventually some of this forms sugars. In eukaryotes , this occurs in the stroma of the chloroplast .
