Energy   Flow   in   Ecosystems Mr. Schumaier
What energy roles do organisms play in an ecosystem? 1
Organism's play one of three roles: Producer Consumer Decomposer 1
What is a PRODUCER? 2
An organism that can make its own food such as grass and trees. 2
 
What is a CONSUMER? 3
An organism that gets its energy by feeding on other organisms 3
 
 
 
Describe HERBIVORES, CARNIVORES, OMNIVORES, & SCAVENGERS. 4
Herbivores Eat only plants such as caterpillars, cattle, and deer. 4
Carnivores Eats only animals such as lions, spiders, and snakes. 4
Omnivore Eats both plants and animals such as Crows, goats, and most humans. 4
 
Scavenger A carnivore that eats the bodies of dead organisms such at catfish and vultures. 4
What do herbivores and carnivores have in common? 5
Herbivores and carnivores are similar in that both are consumers; they cannot make their own food but must obtain food by ...
 
What are DECOMPOSERS? 6
An organism that breaks down wastes and dead organisms and returns raw material to the environment   Bacteria, fungi,  mol...
 
 
What is the FOOD CHAIN? 7
A series of events in which one organism eat another and obtains energy. 7
 
 
What is a FOOD WEB?  8
Many overlapping food chains in an ecosystem. 8
 
What can be shown through the use of food chain and food web diagrams? 9
Food Chain  shows one possible path that energy moves through an ecosystem. Food web is a more realistic way to show the f...
What is an ENERGY PYRAMID? 10
A diagram that shows the amount of energy that moves from one feeding level to another in a food web. 10
 
How much energy is available at each level of an energy pyramid? 11
Third-level consumers = 1kcal Second-level consumers = 10 kcal First-level consumers = 100 kcal Producers = 1,000 kcal 11
The most energy is available at the producer level.  At each level in the pyramid, there is less available energy than at ...
Why are food webs a more realistic way of portraying ecosystems than food chains? 13
Most producers and consumers are part of many overlapping food chains. 13

  12. 17. Scavenger A carnivore that eats the bodies of dead organisms such at catfish and vultures. 4
  13. 18. What do herbivores and carnivores have in common? 5
  14. 19. Herbivores and carnivores are similar in that both are consumers; they cannot make their own food but must obtain food by eating other organisms. 5
  15. 21. What are DECOMPOSERS? 6
  16. 22. An organism that breaks down wastes and dead organisms and returns raw material to the environment Bacteria, fungi, molds, mushrooms 6
  17. 25. What is the FOOD CHAIN? 7
  18. 26. A series of events in which one organism eat another and obtains energy. 7
  19. 29. What is a FOOD WEB? 8
  20. 30. Many overlapping food chains in an ecosystem. 8
  21. 32. What can be shown through the use of food chain and food web diagrams? 9
  22. 33. Food Chain shows one possible path that energy moves through an ecosystem. Food web is a more realistic way to show the flow of energy through an ecosystem 9
  23. 34. What is an ENERGY PYRAMID? 10
  24. 35. A diagram that shows the amount of energy that moves from one feeding level to another in a food web. 10
  25. 37. How much energy is available at each level of an energy pyramid? 11
  26. 38. Third-level consumers = 1kcal Second-level consumers = 10 kcal First-level consumers = 100 kcal Producers = 1,000 kcal 11
  27. 39. The most energy is available at the producer level. At each level in the pyramid, there is less available energy than at the previous level. 11
  28. 40. Why are food webs a more realistic way of portraying ecosystems than food chains? 13
  29. 41. Most producers and consumers are part of many overlapping food chains. 13
