Pyramid food chains and food webs

🔱Our pyramid food chain🔱

We have a food chain with three animals as follows;
Our food chain has grass (producer / autotroph), bird (primary consumer / heterotroph), and humans (secondary consumer / heterotroph). As we are the top of the food chain, we eat the primary consumer. For example: we eat fish, sheep, beef, pork, etc.

We are the top of the food chain, we can be omnivores or carnivores. We have another name; heterotroph; means that we use organic carbon for growth. We are the 2nd consumer (in level). 

As food chains get bigger, they turn into food webs, which are even bigger. Furthermore, there are two types of pyramids in a food chain - pyramid of numbers and pyramid of biomass. 

In addition, there are 5 levels in a food chain starts off with a decomposer, followed by a producer, followed by the 1st to 3rd consumer. As for our food consumed, we have to lose heat 30%, use 10% for growth, use 60% to lose waste. 

There examples below for you to examine 🔎.

What is my symbiosis poster all about???

💧What is my symbiosis poster about?💧

Image result for protocooperation bee and flower           My poster is about how animals cooperate with each other (Protocooperation(+,+)) which they also have benefits for each other. In addition, there is also predation which is the action of attacking of one animals on others a secondary consumer eating a primary consumer (+,-). Finally is competition which is a fight of two organisms for things that need to survive or save the species such as food, mate or living place (-,-).
This poster is a project on protocooperation, predation, and competition. There are pictures that you can look at which are the examples of what my poster is all about. There are benefits and damages to the environment.
For example, the (+,+) which will be totally healthy and beneficial to the animals. The (+,-) sign will be only benefit the one of them and the other will have a disadvantage. The (-,-) will not beneficially benefit either of them.
