the meaning of heterotrophs and consumers in an ecosystem

What are heterotrophs? Heterotrophs are organisms mainly animals which are also called consumers in an ecosystem, this organisms call heterotrophs cannot manufacture their own food but depend directly or indirectly on plants known as producers to make the food hence they are called consumer in an ecosystem Animals that feed primarily or directly on green plant are called herbivores or primary consumers. Animals that feed on the primary consumers in an ecosystem are called carnivores or secondary consumers Wild animals that feed on the secondary consumers or carnivals are called consumers. Heterotroph includes all animals carnivorous plant fungi and most protist and some bacteria. The definition of consumer or heterotrophs in an ecosystem Consumers or heterotrophs in is an organism which derives its nutrient energy and food from eating plants directly or indirectly. In other words, heterotrophs or consumers are organisms which depends on other organisms for food energy and nutrient Good to note that all consumers are heterotrophs and they Lack chlorophyll. Heterotrophs as consumers are animals that derive their nutrient food and energy from eating plants directly e.g. a cow and sheep and also called herbivores or primary consumers. Carnivores are also called secondary consumers in an ecosystem So in reality consumers are heterotrophs that feed on other organisms they include all holozoic organisms such as herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, decomposers and parasites Some typical examples of heterotrophs in a terrestrial ecosystem are caterpillar, cow, dog, lion, toad, Lizard, Man etc Examples of aquatic heterotrophs include water fleas, tadpole, larva of mosquitoes and insects and fishes.

what is autotrophic feeding

what is an autotrophy? Definition of autotrophy Autotrophic simply refers to the process whereby certain organisms EG green plant uses sunlight or other chemicals to manufacture their own food from inorganic materials through a process called photosynthesis. Autotrophic organisms uses photosynthesis to manufacture their own food. What is photosynthesis? Photosynthesis as a type of Autotrophy feeding is a process whereby green plant manufacture their own food using carbon dioxide and the presence of sunlight. Ok Most green plants are autotrophs. Being autotroph simply means that this green plant will always manufacture their own food. When autotrophs is mentioned it is assumed or implied that this plant that are green in colour as a result of the pigment that is found in the body or the stomata of the leaf simply means that every plant that is green majorly manufacture or produce their own food. in any sense it is said that every autotrophic plant will always manufacture their own food which means they are Direct producer in the food chain Most grasses and plants are producers in the food chain the food chain or tropic levels is th hie rate of change of energy being consumed or transferred from the producer to the consumer in ecological system.

What are autotrophs? Autotrophs are organisms green plant and some bacteria which can use sunlight or chemicals to manufacture their food from inorganic substances during the process of photosynthesis. In other words autotrophs are organisms capable of synthesizing their own food has they are called producers in the ecosystem Definition of a producer in the ecosystem Producer in the ecosystem are green plants or autotrophs which traps the energy of sunlight radiant energy of solar energy and convert it into chemical energy in order to form organic compounds and photosynthesise using carbon dioxide and water or simple inorganic substances as a raw materials. The producers in an ecosystem of an habitat forms the basis and origin of every food chain. Autotrophs produces food for every other organisms in the habitat Examples of producers or autotrophs in a habitat Examples of autotrophs are grasses trees and shrubs while aquatic autotrophs are phytoplankton water hyacinth and seaweed.....
