Temperate Forest Food Web

 

An ecosystem is when living and nonliving things interact with each other. An ecosystem is also like a food web. It is like a chain reaction. If one animal got extinct and there was no more of those animals, the whole ecosystem would fall apart. The animal that eats the extinct animal will die with no food, then so on. Temperate forests are usually located in United States, Canada, Europe, China, Japan, and parts of Russia. Deciduous forests are broken up into five zones. The first zone is the tree stratum zone.

Producers

Producers are plants that consumers eat. They are always the start of a food web or chain.

Consumers

Consumers are animals that eat producers/plants or other animals. Consumers are always second to last in the food web or chain.

Decomposers

Decomposers eat dead animals and plants. Some decomposers are bacteria and fungi. Decomposers are always last in the food web or chain.

    Dear Victoria,
    I love how you wrote about the ecosystem itself, not just the flow of energy that’s happening there. Also that you broke up the text about producers, consumers and decomposers in order to organize it.
    From,
