Agenda 09/28/00 to 09/29/00
1) The producers, plants, are the only group that can convert energy (e.g. sunlight) into a useable form (e.g. building materials such as starch).
2) The food web would have all herbivores eating all plants, and all carnivores eating all animals. This is inaccurate, because the beetle probably does not eat the turtle. They did not say what predator ate which prey.
4) Every trophic level falls to the decomposers. They take care of anything that dies, the remains of killed prey (e.g. blood, skin, etc.) and waste products.
