How do consumers get their food?
What if there will be no producers in the food chain?
Example of food chain then identify the producers and consumers?
In a food chain, there are four crucial members. There are the primary producers, primary consumers, secondary consumers and tertiary consumers. An example of a food chain can be found in a stream found in a forest. The primary producers would be plant like producers such as algae that produce food energy for the primary consumers which would be small microorganisms, or very small fish. The secondary consumers such as salmon will feed on these primary consumers for food. The tertiary consumers such as bears will feed on the secondary consumers for their food.
