  1. 1. FOOD CHAIN Linkages of organisms within an ecosystem, in which each link feeds on the one before it and is fed on by the one after it.
  2. 2.  Food chain shows how each living thing gets its food. Some animals eat plants and some animals eat other animals.
  3. 3. PRODUCER The first link in the chain (called herbage). Plants are called producers because they are able to use light energy from the Sun to produce food (sugar) from carbon dioxide and water.
  4. 4. GREEN PLANTS EXAMPLE OF PRODUCER
  5. 5. CONSUMER Animals cannot make their own food so they must eat plants and/or other animals.
  6. 6. PRIMARY CONSUMER First consumer.
  7. 7. Animals that eat only plants.
  8. 8. INSECTS AN EXAMPLE OF PRIMARY CONSUMER
  9. 9. SECONDARYCONSUMERS
  10. 10. Consumers that eat herbivores.
  11. 11. FROG EXAMPLE SECONDARY CONSUMERS
  12. 12. TERTIARY CONSUMERS
  13. 13. Carnivores that eat other carnivores.
  14. 14. EAGLE AN EXAMPLE OF TETIARY CONSUMERS
  15. 15.  Animals and people who eat both animals and plants are called omnivores.
  16. 16.  Bacteria and fungi which feed on decaying matter. These decomposers speed up the decaying process that releases mineral salts back into the food chain for absorption by plants as nutrients.
