1. How does the flow of energy through an ecosystem compare with cycling of matter?
energy moves through an ecosystem in the form of food
am i correct??????????
That's a good start.
Then what happens?
ummm..... i don't know really
i'm struggling a little
ummm.... that producers are organisms that capture energy from the sun and use it to fuel photosynthesis
What happens to food after a person or an animal eats it? How does an animal's defecation benefit the environment?
cycling of matter is when say a rabbit (consumer) is eating plants (producer) then the rabbit dies and a vulture (scavenger) comes and eats the remains of the rabbit and the decomposers eat the skeleton of the rabbit, which gets in the soil, and makes the plants grow again, and the cycle starts all over again.
Yes. But you've ignored the defecation or disposal of waste products from food consumption.
i didn't ignore it
it helped because i googled what cycling of matter is
if i google it then i'll get a better understanding of the question
