What is a food web?
A food web is the natural interconnection of food chains, a representation of what eats what in a ecological community.
Producer & Consumer
Plants are producers cause they produce their own food. They use light energy from the sun, carbon dioxide from the air and water from the soil, also called photosynthesis.
Consumers are animals that eat primary producers, they are called herbivores.
Producers start the food chain by making their own food then the consumer eats the plant/producer.
Ex: grass & rabbit
Predator & Prey
Predator is an animal that eats another organism.
Prey is an animal hunted and killed for food by the predator.
The prey is part of the environment and the predator dies if it does not get food.
