Photosynthetic Bacteria Algae Green Plants
What are some autotrophs and How are they made autotrophs?
Some autotrophs/producers are: Wheat Fungi Algae Cacti Trees Shrubs They are made autotrophs because they can produce their own food. ...

Autotrophs that do not use energy from the sun?
There are some examples of Autotrophs that don't need photosynthesis to make food. One is there are Tube Worms (plants) that grow around sulfur vents in the bottom of the ocean where the sun can't reach. ...

Do autotrophs or hereotrophs perform the process of photosynthesis?
Autotrophs do. Autotrophs are organisms that can produce their own food using raw materials and a source of energy obtained from the environment. Some autotrophs are photosynthetic while some are chemosynthetic. Heterotrophs cannot synthesize their own food and depend on autotrophs, directly or indirectly, for nutrition. ...
Asked in Biology, Microbiology
Autotrophs are dependent on autotrophs directly when they?
Autotrophs are not dependent on other autotrophs.
Asked in Protists
What are examples of autotroph?
Autotrophs are organisms that can produce their own food from inorganic substances either through photosynthesis (using light energy) or through chemosynthesis (using chemical energy). Some types of autotrophs include terrestrial plants and/or aquatic plants like algae. ...
Asked in Animal Life
What are autoatrophs?
Autoatrophs are organisms that create their own food. Examples include most types of plants. They collect sunlight, water and air and combine that to make glucose, their food. Some types of fungi are also Autotrophs. No mammals are Autotrophs because they must consume their food. ...
Why are producer organisms called autotrophs?
Autotrophs, or "self-feeders", sustain themselves without feeding off of energy derived from other organisms. Instead, they obtain their own food from inorganic substances using light or chemical energy. Autotrophs are generally known as the producers of the biosphere since they produce organic molecules (i.e. CO2 and H2O) and other inorganic molecules. This allows them to sustain and provide food for heterotrophs, or "other feeders" as well. **Examples of Autotrophs: plants, algae, some prokaryotes, some other protists ...
