Nutrition energy flow

Nutrition & Energy Flow

Energy—The ability to cause change.


Obtaining energy

Obtaining Energy

  • Ultimate source of all energy is from the sun.

  • Autotrophs

    • A.K.A--Producers

    • Uses light energy to make food

    • Examples: trees, plants, grass, green algae

  • Heterotrophs

    • A.K.A—Consumers

    • Can’t produce own food

    • Obtain nutrients by eating other organisms

      • Decomposers— obtain energy from breaking down dead organisms.


Types of heterotrophs

Types of Heterotrophs

  • Herbivore

    • Feeds only on plants

  • Carnivores

    • Feeds on other heterotrophs

  • Scavengers

    • Feed on animals that are already dead

  • Omnivores

    • Feed on both plants and animals

  • Decomposers

    • Break down complex substances of dead organisms


Food chains

Food Chains

  • Simple model that shows how matter/energy moves through an ecosystem.

  • Moves from autotrophs to heterotrophs to decomposers

  • Amount of energy in the final transfer is only a portion of the starting amount

  • A portion of energy is given off as heat at each transfer

Arrow Points To Where The Energy Is Going


Food web

Food Web

  • More complex than a food chain

  • Show multiple food chains

  • Shows all possible feeding relationships


Trophic levels

  • A feeding step

Color the arrows from each of the following to the next level:

Producers – green

Primary – yellow

Secondary – red

Tertiary- blue

Quaternary- orange Decomposers - brown


Biomass trophic levels

Biomass Trophic Levels

  • Can Show Biomass (total weight of living matter) at each level.

  • It also show the amount that the level above it needs to consume to meet its needs.


Energy pyramid

Energy Pyramid

  • Each level decreases by 10%

  • 10% rule!

  • The energy is lost in the form of heat at each level.
