The energy is transferred to organisms that eat producers and transferred again when organisms eat consumers. Consumers are animals that cannot make their own food. They get their energy from plants, other animals or both. Producers are green plants that produce their own food using energy from sunlight in a process called photosynthesis. Decomposers such as bacteria and fungi break down decaying matter for food. Biomes A large ecosystem of plants and animals in a region with a certain type of climate is called a biome. Food Chain A food chain is a model that shows how energy is passed from one organism to another. Food Web A food web is an interconnected series of different food chains that describes the feeding relationships between species within an ecosystem.
