Presentation on theme: "Food webs model interactions within the community."— Presentation transcript:
Food webs model interactions within the community.
Producers Create their own food using sun’s energy Start energy flow Consumers Eat other organisms to get their energy Herbivores, Omnivores, Carnivores Decomposers Break down dead plants, animals, and waste and return nutrients to the ecosystem
Show how living things get their energy It is linear. The arrow represents energy.
Show how energy moves through a community Made up of food chains Producers are at the base and top consumers are at the top
Arrow goes to the organism that does the eating because they get the energy. Producers always start ALL food chains/webs Arrows are neat
