Autotrophs are organisms that do not consume any other organisms in order to gather enough energy to maintain metabolism and cellular respiration. Autotrophs take in energy from abiotic elements of their ecosystems. For example, autotrophic plants go through photosynthesis, a process in which they draw energy from sunlight, to enable them to assemble glucose molecules from their molecular components.
