To know the Deciduous woodland Food Web, first read around the Deciduous woodland Biome using this link.

You are watching: Food chain in the deciduous forest

Then read about the different trophic levels the a common Food Chain (below). The trophic level is the place that an biology (plant or animal) occupies in a food chain - what that eats, and also what eats it.

Energy flows through an ecosystem as one animal eats another pet or plant. Plants make (produce) their very own food using water, sunlight and carbon dioxide (photosynthesis). Plants start the food chain. Over there are more plants than any other living thing due to the fact that they are the bottom of the food chain. They provide the energy for every little thing else. They room the PRODUCERS. The animals (insects, mice, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, deer) that mostly eat plants are referred to as the herbivores. There room fewer herbivores 보다 there space plants due to the fact that each herbivore demands a most plant issue to live. Herbivores feed straight on the producers. They are the PRIMARY CONSUMERS. animals (spiders, birds, snakes) that eat the primary consumers (herbivores) are the SECONDARY CONSUMERS. There space fewer secondary consumers 보다 there are major consumers since each secondary consumers have to eat a lot of of main consumers come live. pets (fox, coyotes, eagles, owls) that eat the first & second consumers are carnivores (they eat meat). They are the TERTIARY CONSUMERS. There are fewer tertiary consumers than there are an additional consumers because each tertiary customer needs come eat a lot of an additional consumers come live. since there are fewer pets as you relocate up the food chain, it is yes, really a food pyramid through the huge carnivores needing come eat the most and so gift the rarest the the animal kingdom. Because pets eat so many things, the food chain has many overlapping parts, for this reason is yes, really a FOOD WEB. Last but not least, the DECOMPOSERS and DETRITIVORES eat and so recycle dead animals and also plants (mushrooms, fungi, insects, bacteria). Naught is wasted.

Now research the Deciduous forest Food internet Illustration listed below (online or by printing out the high resolution pdf). Note the different varieties and wherein they fit into the food web trophic levels decribed above.

Print and also fill out the Deciduous forest Food web Trophic Level Data Sheet (pdf below).
