Producers, Consumers, and Decomposers in the Forest Community. By Taylor Seigler. A: Producers: Photosynthesizing organisms Producers are any kind of green plant. Green plants make their food by taking sunlight and using the energy to make sugar.
The Producers, Consumers, and Decomposers in the Rainforest Producers: The rain forest grows in three levels, the Canopy, which is the tallest level it has trees between 100 and 200 feet tall. The second level called the understory contains a mix of shrubs, ferns, palms, small trees and vines.
The food chain within the deciduous forest comprises "producers," "consumers" and "decomposers." At the beginning of the chain is the sun, which turns plants into producers. When the sun’s energy in the form of light and heat strikes the surface of a plant's leaf, a photosensitive molecule called chlorophyll stimulates a process called photosynthesis, a series of ...
Producers ; Consumers; Decomposers; Interactions in the Ecosystem; Resources; The job of a decomposer is to break down dead organisms/matter.The decomposers in the tropical rain forest are on the forest floor. Decomposers Here are some of the decomposers in the tropical rain forest: ...
Again there are many roles in an ecosystem, but for now lets look at the consumers in the tropical rain forest. Consumers Consumers use food from producer to keep the food chain/food web going. Now there are primary and secondary consumers.
Forest Ecosystem. Observe and manipulate the populations of four creatures (trees, deer, bears, and mushrooms) in a forest. Investigate the feeding relationships (food web) in the forest. Determine which creatures are producers, consumers, and decomposers. Pictographs and line graphs show changes in populations over time.
Decomposers are living things that get their energy from the waste materials of other organisms. The rainforest ecosystem relies on these organisms to break down waste materials into usable energy for other plants. Because of the abundance of life in the rainforest, the process of decomposition happens quickly and at a large scale.
The consumer organisms in the next level above such as insects, deer and rodents, eat the producers. At this level, there is also symbiosis that occurs in the forest, like bees collecting nectar as they pollenate plants. Consumers. Consumers are unable to make their own food like plants do, so they must eat other organisms.
