Inorganic Chemical Compounds
soem types of organisms rely on the energy stored in __________ ___________ ____________.
organisms that capture energy from sunlight or chemicals and use that energy to produce food; producers
process by which autotrophs get energy through light with the combination of carbon dioxide and water being sparked by light energy and turning into carbohydrates and oxygen
process by which hydrogen sulfide and oxygen combine, forming sulfur compound which produce chemical energy and then the cells make carbohydrates using carbon dioxide from sea water
a series of steps in whihc organisms transfer energy by eating and being eaten; one-way flow of energy in an ecosystem
shows the relative amound of energy abailable at each trophic level; organisms use about 10% of this energy for life processes, rest is lost by heat
represents the amount of living organic matter at each trophic level; typically the greatest biomass is at the base of the pyramid
