A food chain refers to an ecosystem’s order of events, where one living organism eats another organism, and another larger organism later consumes that organism. A food chain is created by the transfer of nutrients and energy from one organism to another at various trophic levels.
- At the producer level, the forest food chain involves trees and vegetables.
- Rats, rabbits, deer and elephants are the primary consumers that eat plants, grass and trees.
- The jackal, the fox are the secondary consumers
- Ultimately the tertiary consumers are the tiger & lion.
