Paste the link into the google.com search box, and you can find a cache
of the page listing the labs. The Biology Lab Clearinghouse site is
either temporarily offline or defunct. The C3/C4 experiments use the
www.qubitsystems.com photosynthesis equipment. Qubit Systems might have
copies of the labs.

A simple C3/C4 experiment is to grow a C3 plant and a C4 plant in a
sealed, clear plastic or glass container. The C4 plant will grow better
because it has a lower CO2 compensation point. It will effectively
"steal" the CO2 the C3 plant respires.
