preform photosynthesis, use light as energy source, use carbon dioxide as carbon source
use light as energy source, get organic compounds from other organisms as carbon source
oxidize inorganic substances for energy source, use some of that energy to fix Carbon dioxide for carbon source
obtain both energy and carbon atoms from organic compounds that have been synthesized by other organisms
