Ecosystems can contain a number of different organisms, all depending on each other to live, grow and survive. A food web is a great way to see how various organisms in an ecosystem interact with each other.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
Not all animals eat the same things. Some animals only eat plants, others eat other animals and some eat both. Those animals which only eat plants are called herbivores. Those that eat other animals for energy are called carnivores. Animals (like you and me) which eat both plants and other animals are called omnivores.
