Question
Hello Mr. Hintz! Could you please give me further explanation about food chains and certain relationships between certain species. Thanks in advance!

Answer
The tropic that you are concerned is called Trophic Ecology. Living things are divided into different groups
1. Producers- Green plants
2. Herbivore Consume the producers
3. Carnivores-do not consume producers but herbivores and other carnivores
4. Omnivore- eat plants and animals
5  saprophytes. recycle dead animals and plants

A food chain includes all of these groups
