Which Organisms Are Chemotrophs?

Chemotrophs are animals that obtain energy by oxidation of electron donors in the environment. These can be organic, known as chemoautotrophs, and inorganic, known as chemolithotrophs. Humans, mushrooms and bacteria are a few examples of chemotrophs. Humans breakdown the organic materials in their cells and obtain energy. Mushrooms also derive energy by breaking down organic material.
