- Matter is conserved because atoms are conserved in physical and chemical processes.
- The transfer of energy can be tracked as energy flows through a natural system.
- Plants need energy from the sun, carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and water to produce energy in the form of glucose.
- The biotic part of an ecosystem have producers, consumers, and decomposers.
- Matter moves through the biotic part of the ecosystems as organisms consumer each other.
- The biotic and abiotic parts of an ecosystem interact as matter cycles between them.
- Organisms consumer food for growth and to release energy.
- Food molecules are rearranged and release energy for organisms to use for the processes of life.
- Food molecules contain carbon. They react with oxygen to release energy. As a result, carbon dioxide and water
consumer (primary, secondary, tertiary)
