Term Definition
Omnivore an organism that eats both plants and animals.
Food Chain the pathway of energy transfer through various stages as a result of feeding patterns of a series of organisms.
Food Web a diagram that shows the feeding relationships between organisms in an ecosystem.

What is a pathway of energy and food from one organism to another?

A food chain shows how energy flows from one organism to another. In general, energy flows from the Sun to producers and then to consumers. The path is linear as the energy present in one step is transferred to the next. You can find specific examples of this pathway in an ecosystem.

What is the study of the interactions of living organism with one another and with their environment?

Ecology is the study of how organisms interact with one another and with their physical environment. The distribution and abundance of organisms on Earth is shaped by both biotic, living-organism-related, and abiotic, nonliving or physical, factors.

What is biotic and abiotic factors interacting within the setting of a community?

The biotic part of the environment is all of the organisms that live together and interact with one another. The abiotic part of the environment includes all of the physical factors such as water, soil, light, and temperature that affect organisms living in a particular area.

What are the 4 energy transfer pathways?

There are 4 ways energy can be transferred;

  • Mechanically – By the action of a force.
  • Electrically – By an electrical current.
  • By radiation – By Light waves or Sound waves.
  • By heating – By conduction, convection or radiation.

    Which way does energy flow and how does eating one organism result in energy transfer?

    Within the food chain energy can be passed and transferred from one organism to another. Energy is passed between organisms through the food chain. Food chains start with producers. They are eaten by primary consumers which are in turn eaten by secondary consumers.
