In this article we will discuss Division of Ecosystem

Division of Ecosystem

The ecosystem can be divided, from the energetic view point into three types of organisms: producers, consumers, and reducers. These can be explained as under:

(1) Producer
Photosynthetic algae, plants and bacteria are the producers of the ecosystem; all other organisms depend upon them directly or indirectly for food.

(2) Consumers
Consumers are herbivorous, carnivorous, and omnivorous animals; they eat the organic matter produced by other organisms.

(3) Reducers
Reducers are heterotrophic organisms like animals; they are fungi and bacterial that
decompose dead organic matter.
