Question:

Answers:Ok heterotrophs are the organism that finds food, does matter if they just digest them or the hunt for the food, its the same, so all you have to remeber is the organism that doesn;t make food for themselve the organism that are heterotrophs are anything but plants, meaning fungi, protist, animals, Autotroph are the organism taht make their food, plants are one, and their is some organism that can make their own food but also hunt for their food, mostly marine plankton

Question:I already know that a venus flytrap is an autotroph, because it eats flies and other small insects strictly for proteins. Is there one that exists that's both??? thank you!!

Answers:ANSWER: Yes! EXAMPLE: Euglena. It is a single-celled organism that has both plant- and animal-like characteristics. It is classified as a Eukaryote from Kingdom Protista. CHARACTERISTICS: It can photosynthesize when there is light, therefore, it can make its own food. But when light is not available it can get food from its aquatic environment. It can also swim by the motion of its flagella. For more information and a killer video, see the site below:

Question:i need this for my homework... please answer this WHOLE question: "Are the vegetarians the only heterotrophs that gets all their energy from plants? do they follow the 10 law of available energy? explain your answer." >>>> i am totally hating my teacher who gave this question. she never taught anything. not even say anything when it comes to her subject. what ever.... thanks to you guys... hey douche bag, i'm not asking for your fucking ad! SO SORRY... I MEAN DO THEY FOLLOW THE 10%LAW OF AVAILABLE ENERGY? When energy is transferred to the next trophic level, typically only 10% of it is used to build new biomass, becoming stored energy (the rest going to metabolic processes). As such, in a pyramid of productivity each step will be 10% the size of the previous step (100, 10, 1, 0.1, 0.01, 0.001 etc.). source: wikipedia.org in the case of the energy pyramid, the energy of the plankton which are producers at the base of the pyramid is also reduced and only 10% moves to the next level. this loss goes on at every level until only 0.01% reaches the top consumers. source: my book. thanks to you... a lot...

Answers:All animal species eventually derive their energy from plants regardless of whether they are herbivores (the more proper term instead of vegetarians) or carnivores. Carnivores prey on herbivores, so ultimately even carnivores are dependent upon getting their energy from plants. Added: I am not sure what the 10 laws of available energy are. I did a google search and nothing came up. Did your teacher describe and list them? Added: That doesn't come up either. What did your teacher say about it? Added: Sorry to take so long. I was away from my computer. I thought it was something like that, but I don't really think it can be labeled a law because efficiencies in energy transfer can change depending on the organism. To my way of thinking it would be more of an approximation. By the way, what I said initially about carnivores and herbivores applies to other kingdoms as well. For example, even though they are not carnivores, fungi, such as mushrooms, feed on organic material that ultimately had its origin in plants or simpler organisms that derive their energy from the sun or chemical sources.

Question:can someone give me a realistic food chain with about 5 organisms and can you tell me if each organism is an autotroph or heterotroph? and can you give me an example of a realistic human disruption in it?

Answers:Simple food chain: Worm, Fish, Human... back to worm Disruption: Embalming makes the human corpse inedible for the worm.

Science & Chemistry Facts : What Are Some Examples of Heterotrophs? :Some examples of heterotrophs are all animals, all fungi and many bacteria. Any organism that has to get energy from consuming other organic beings is considered a heterotroph. Find out about autotrophs, which are the opposite of heterotrophs, with information from a science tutor in this free video on science and nature.

The Kingdom of Life :The Five Kingdom Classification System was developed by RH Whittaker and Lynn Margulis. The classifications are: Kingdom Animalia, Fungi, Plantae, Protista, and Monera. This Five Kingdom systems is evidence for a common ancesotor for all life because it acknowledges heredity as an major force in evolution. Kingdom Monera is made up of unicellular prokaryotes that lack membrane bound organelles and a membrane bound nucleus. Bacteria, the first organisms on earth, make up this kingdom. The bacteria can be heterotrophic, where it cannot make its own nutrients and instead obtains its nutrients from other organisms. Or, it can be autotrophic where it can produce its nutrients through phototrophs, which use light, or chemoautotrophs, which metabolize things like sulfur, salt, and iron. Kingdom Protista are eukaryotic with membrane bound organelles, a nucleus, and are mostly unicellular. Although some are multicellular for example, seaweed. Some Protista are good and others can be bad like some pathogens. Kingdom Fungi are sessile, unicellular and multicellular heterotrophs. Many fungi obtain nutrient molecules by extracellular digestion. They secrete enzymes that hydrolize cellulose into smaller components such as glucose. The small molecules follow a concentration gradient into the fungal cells then are metabolized. Many fungi live in symbiotic relationships which can be both beneficial, parasitic, or harmful. Many fungi are decomposers as well. Kingdom Animalia is made up of ...
