Territory consumers are carnivorous like a fox. Secondary consumers are animals who eat primary consumers like a mouse. Primary consumers are usually herbivores, feeding on plants and fungus . A producer is something that grows. Decompoers is fungi that is killed by the producer. Without a food chain humans probably wouldn't exist because all of these animals we eat are an important role on the food chain we wouldn't exist if these animals weren't alive and the grass wouldn't grow.

Humans Impacting The Enviroment

  • Negative

    i) The growth in human population and industrialization has resulted in the extinction of a number of flora and fauna by deforestation.

    (ii) Clearing the natural vegetation and its replacement by a single crop has reduced the biological diversity and the single crop has become suscep­tible to pests and insects.

    (iii) Burning of fossil fuels, automobile exhausts, gaseous effluents from facto­ries have led to pollution of land, air and water and its related conse­quences.

    (iv) Hunting of animals and birds and introduction of new predators in the environment has caused extinction of some species.

    Positive

    (i) Humans are responsible for the introduction of new species of plants from one part of the world to another; for example, rubber from the Amazon Basin of Brazil was brought to Malaysia, which is now the world's largest producer of rubber.

    (ii) By selective breeding, he has improved the yields of crops.

    (iii) By domesticating animals he has protected them from their predators.
