What Are Producers and Consumers?

You Try Will the condor eat an entire dead animal? Explain. What happens to the part of the dead animal that the condor doesnt eat?

What Are Decomposers? Decomposers A decomposer is a living thing that feeds on wastes and the remains of dead plants and animals

Decomposers break down wastes and remains into nutrients. The nutrients goes into the soil, and plants take in the nutrients through their roots..

Decomposers Animal Wastes Plant Wastes Dead Organisms Decomposers

Nutrients Decomposers Decomposers come in all sizes (examples: Bacteria and Mushrooms). Without decomposers the

Earth would be covered with dead plants and animals. Scavengers A scavenger is an animal that eats large pieces of plant and animal remains. Scavengers break down plants and animals into smaller pieces, then the decomposers take over.

Scavengers Sow Bug Millipedes Condor

Fungi A fungus is an organism that absorbs nutrients from living plants and dead plant materials. Fungi Fungi

breaks down materials into nutrients and absorbs some of the nutrients into their own cells. Three types of Fungi: mold, mushroom, and sac Fungi

In some forests fungi are the main decomposers. Forest decomposers have a special way of digging into wood by releasing a chemical.

Fungi are found in both freshwater and seawater. Fungi Even though fungi is a decomposers, they are also a food source for other living things.

You Try How are molds, mushrooms, and other types of fungi alike? Microorganisms A microorganism is a living

thing that is so small it cannot be seen. Bacteria is the most common type. Decomposer bacteria is found in soil and water.

1. 2. Bacteria provides food in two ways: They release nutrients by decomposing matter They are also a source of food for other living things

Molds are another type of microorganism Like bacteria, molds are also food for other living things.
