  • Tropical Rainforest: How Energy Flows Through an EcosystemEvery living thing needs energy in order to grow and live. Plants use sunlight, water and nutrients to get energy. This process is called photosynthesis.Plants are the producers. Animals get energy from the food they eat. They are called consumers.A food chain and food web shows how each living thing gets food, and how energy are passed from creature to creature. Food chains begin with plant-life, and end with animal-life.

Producers get energy by making their own food and consumers eat other organisms for energy. Without the flow of energy, organisms will die. This dependence on other organisms for food leads to feeding relationships that interconnect all living things in an ecosystem.
