Afood web shows who eats who in any given habitat. every living thing, from one-celled algae to giant blue whales, needs food to survive. each food web is a possible pathway that energy and matter can follow through the habitat. a food web begins with producers: organisms that convert sunlight into usable chemical energy. the food web is completed by the decomposers who turn organic wastes, such as decaying plants, into inorganic materials, such as nutrient-rich soil. decomposers complete the cycle of life, returning nutrients to the soil or oceans for use by producers. in this food web, identify the decomposer.
The bacteria living in the soil are the decomposers, along with fungi. The are responsible for the decomposition of dead organic matter.

4. A food chain shows the flow of energy from one item to the next but a food web does not.
a food chain is a small piece of a larger food web. Is true
C is the answer
Explanation: For a cell to form proteins, the specific types of proteins are coded for by the genes in DNA (found in the chromosomes of the nucleus). To produce proteins, the genes are first transcribed by RNA polymerase to form messenger-RNA. The mRNA is then translated into proteins by ribosomes in the cytoplasm of the cell.
Explanation: Translation of genes into proteins is dependent on the sequence of nucleotides. They are translated in sequences of 3 nucleotides known as codons. Therefore adding a nucleotide on a piece of DNA causes what is referred to as a frame-shift mutation. The 3 sequences (of codons) is interrupted and shifted by one nucleotide. Therefore, the codons change and the amino acids translated will also change.
Expanation: Producers are significant in a food chain because they incorporate the energy of the sun into the food chain. This is why they are at the base of the food chain and have the largest biomass. They are consumed by primary consumers which are consumed by secondary consumers which are consumed by tertiary consumers and so on.
Explanation: Plants are consumed by herbivores. Therefore, a decrease in plant population due to drought was resulted to decrease in herbivore population. This is due to stiff competition by the herbivores for the scarce plant population. Carnivores consume herbivores. Due to a decrease in the herbivore population, then the carnivore population would also decrease.
Explanation: Burning of fossil fuels emits carbon dioxide gas which is a greenhouse gas. Greenhouse gas traps infrared wavelength of lights hence warming up the atmosphere, causing global warming. Reduction in use of fossil fuels will hence alleviate an increase in global temperature hence protect coral in the oceans from bleaching.
The base of the ecological pyramid is composed only of producers while the food web has a varied base of producers and consumers.

C. Food webs can include both land and aquatic organisms.
