Asked in Food Chains and Food Webs
What is the most important source in the food chain?
Ultimately, the sun is the source of all the energy in a food chain. The sun's energy is used by plants, and this energy passes along the trophic levels as the plants are eaten by consumers, and the consumers by predators. ...
Why do plants need chlorophyll for Photosynthesis?
Chlorophyll is a green pigment, that can be found in most plants. It absorbs sun light, the energy source for Photosynthesis, and is essential for plants to make food. ...
Why does life depend on photosynthesis?
Because, by the process of photosynthesis plants produce oxygen which is most essential for humans, AND the plants provide food for their own survival and growth, and thus provide a food source for humans and many vegetation eating animals which are another food source for human life. ...

Do all plants make their own food throughphotosynthesis?
Most plants use photosynthesis to create glucose, their food source. However, some plant species are parasites and feed off of others. ...
How will water plants be affected if the pond becomes murky?
The plants would most certainly die; if the water was murky it would block out sunlight, and if the sunlight was blocked out, then the plants would have no source to make food. ...

Asked in Botany or Plant Biology, Mac OS X
Why are plants important to human and animals?
Plants are a major food source (they are autotrophs and can produce food through photosynthesis), they produce the oxygen we breath (through photosynthesis), and they help climate control for us and other animals on this planet (by returning water vapour to the atmosphere and carbon sequestration. They are the primary source of all food for "consumers" and "secondary consumers". They are also directly and indirectly the source of most food, fuel, medicines and (natural) building materials. With out plants earth would be a mostly...
Asked in Insects
How do insects depend on the sun for energy?
The insects food source, for example, a plant would absorb energy from the sun and taking in the fact that a plant is the insects food source, it would most likely eat it and obtain the plants energy that it just obtained from the main energy source. The sun. ...
