Autotrophs: Organisms that generate their own energy. Also known as producers.
Biomes: Communities of plants and animals living together under the same environmental conditions
Chemosynthesis: Process by which hydrogen sulfide is processed for energy; similar to photosynthesis.
Food chain: Diagram that shows which organisms eat each other.
Food web: Diagram that shows how organisms relate to one another in complex ways; shows how energy moves through all of the organisms in an ecosystem.
Heterotrophs: Organisms that consume other organisms for energy. Also known as consumers.
Photosynthesis: Process by which plants and a few types of single-celled organisms use energy from the sun to transform carbon dioxide and water into a storable form of energy.
