Trophic Relationships by Adrián de 5º B

  1. 1. Trophic relationship
  2. 2. 1.Trophic relationship Trophic relationship are important connections between the organisms within an ecosystem. They are the feeding relationships between organisms that “ eat ” and organisms that “ are eaten ”.
  3. 3. 2. Trophic level  In a ecosystem ,we can group organisms by the thing that they feed on .Each group forms a different trophic level. Trophic level : The trophic level of an organism is the position it occupies in a food chain. trophic level has five groups: the producers ,the primary consumers ,the secondary consumers ,the tertiary consumers and the decomposers.
  4. 4. 3.Producers  Producers : Producers are like plants and algae : they make their own food. Producers are eaten by herbivores.
  5. 5. 4.Primary consumers  Primary consumers : Herbivorous organisms are primary consumers: they feed on plants and algae. Primary consumers are eaten of secondary consumers.
  6. 6. 5.Secondary consumers  Primary consumers: Carnivorous organisms are secondary consumers: they feed on herbivorous. Secondary consumers are eaten of tertiary consumers.
  7. 7. 6.Tertiary consumers  Tertiary consumers: Tertiary consumers feed on secondary consumers. Tertiary consumer are eaten by decomposers.
  8. 8. 7.Decomposers  Decomposers: Fungi and bacteria are decomposers: they break down the remains of dead organisms. Decomposers eat producers, primary, secondary and tertiary consumers.
  9. 9. 8.Trophic or food chain  A trophic chain and food chain: A trophic chain or food chain represents the interrelationships between organisms on different trophic levels.
  10. 10. 9.An example of food chain  An example of food chain: In nature, ecosystem include more than one food chain. For example, in a country field, there can be plants that provide food for insects, but snails and mice eat the plants too. Frogs eat the insects, along with spiders , worms and slungs.
  11. 11. 10.Trophic or food web  A trophic web or food web: A trophic web or food web represents all the different food chains within an ecosystem.
  12. 12. Video of food chain: A video of a food chain
  13. 13. Activities  Activities of trophic levels
