Interactions

-Each ecosystem includes the living and nonliving parts that affect the organisms living there.-An ecosystem can be small like a puddle or huge like the ocean.-Deep in the ocean floor bacteria are producers and they don't need sunlight to make food.-A food chain is a model that shows how energy moves in an ecosystem.-Most organisms in an ecosystem are part of more than one food chain.-Different food chains in an ecosystem are linked together in a food web.-The same amount of energy does not move between organisms in an energy pyramid because each organism uses some energy for life processes.-Organisms at the top of an energy pyramid eat more because not as much energy is transferred to them.
