Heterotrophs are also called consumers,UNIVERSAL ACCESS. Inclusion Special Needs Advanced Learners, To engage students interest in feeding relation Point out to interested students this sentence on.

There are many different types of heterotrophs Herbivores. obtain energy by eating only plants Some herbivores are cows Relationships. caterpillars and deer Carnivores including snakes dogs. and owls eat animals Humans bears crows and other,Use Visuals. omnivores eat both plants and animals Detritivores Figure 3 7 After students have. dee TRYT uh vawrz such as mites earthworms snails and studied the figure ask Among the. crabs feed on plant and animal remains and other dead matter organisms shown which are. collectively called detritus Another important group of het autotrophs and which are het. erotrophs called decomposers breaks down organic matter erotrophs The algae are autotrophs. Bacteria and fungi such as the one in Figure 3 6 are decomposers the others are heterotrophs Among. the heterotrophs which are herbi, Feeding Relationships vores and which are carnivores.

Aphids and ladybird beetles may be, collected outdoors or ordered from Food Webs In most ecosystems feeding relationships are. a biological supply house Ladybird more complex than can be shown in a food chain Consider for. beetles also may be available at example the relationships in a salt marsh Although some. garden centers as natural pest producers including marsh grass and other salt tolerant. controls If the organisms are col plants are eaten by water birds grasshoppers and other. lected outdoors make sure they are herbivores most producers complete their life cycles then die. returned to their original locations and decompose Decomposers convert the dead plant matter to. at the conclusion of the activity detritus which is eaten by detritivores such as sandhoppers.
