the path by which energy passes from one living thing to another.
The food chain is many times composed of plants and animals that are inter connected.
The network of all interrelated food chains in a biological community. The energy flow is represented with arrows.
Pollution is destroying the balance of several food web on the plants.
an organism that can make its own food. They are the bottom of the energy pyramid.
Green plants are considered autotrophs.
an organism that cannot make its own food. They receive their energy from haunting, gathering, and storing food.
Humans are heterotrophs, because they cannot make food themselves like plants.
animals that eat other animal.
A lion is a powerful carnivore that only eats other animals, such as gazelles.
animals that eat producer.
Elephants are large animals but are strictly Herbivores.
animals that eat plants and animal.
Species are omnivores, feeding voraciously on fruits and insects.
Micro organisms that are able to break down large molecules into smaller parts. They return the nutrients that are in a living thing into the soil.
The fungus is a decomposer that breaks down dead organisms to use as nutrient.
an animal that feed on dead or decaying animals
Scavenger birds are very ugly.
Herbivores/ consumers that eat producers. They are the second layer of the energy pyramid.
A primary consumer make their own food.
consumers that eat the primary consumers, making them the third layer of the energy pyramid.
Secondary consumers are herbivores that feeds on the primary consumers.
consumers that eat the secondary consumers
I passed my primary and secondary education and now I am doing my Tertiary consumer.
consumers that eat the tertiary consumers.
Example of Quaternary consumers are :Hawk and a Killer Whale
the position an organism holds in the food chain. Examples: Primary Producer, Primary consumers, secondary consumer, tertiary consumer, quaternary consumer.
the owl trophic level consists of plants, insects and rodents.
an image that shows the amount of energy that moves from one trophic level to another in a food chain.
Energy Pyramid is a diagram that shows the amount of energy that moves from one feeding level to another in a food chain.
the animal that is captured or eaten
The little rat was an easy prey for the snake.
an animal that captures and eats other animals.
Many predator would wait and listen till they see their prey coming up.
