    called food. Food contains energy. The food (or energy) can be transferred from one organism to the other through food chains. The starting point of a food chain is a category of organisms called producers. Producers are, in fact, plants.

Suppose there is a field having a lot of green plants (or producers of food). Now...

Heterotrophic organisms cannot make their own food (i.e. cannot carry out photosynthesis), therefore must eat other organisms to get their nutrients e.g. animals. A food chain is the feeding relationship among organisms or the series of living organisms that eat each other. A food chain shows the transfer...
