Food Webs consist of:
Producers- An organism who makes their own food by natural energy that surrounds them (sun)
Primary Consumers-An organism who eats plants
Secondary Consumers- An organism who eats Primary Consumers and other Secondary Consumers
Scavengers- An organism the eats the food left over by other organisms
Decomposers- Organism that breaks down remains of dead organisms
The sun plays a role in every food web because it provides energy to the producers
Environmental changes affect biotic life in the Rainforest greatly. For example droughts can cause animals in the rainforest to starve and plants to die. In 2005, the Amazon experienced a drought. This killed tons of trees in the rainforest. Also, environmental conditions cause plants and animals to adapt to their surroundings.
Symbiosis- a relationship between two animals
Commensalism- a relationship between two organisms when one benefits and the other is not affected
Mutalism- a relationship where both organisms benefit
Parasitism- a relationship is where one organism benefits and the other is harmed
Mutualism Relationships in the Rainforest:
Ex: Capuchin Monkeys and flowering trees
Commensalism Relationships in the Rainforest:
Ex: Ecitoninae ants and Antbirds
Parasitism Relationships in the Rainforest:
Ex: Phorid fly and Leaf Cutter Ants
