Learn About the Food Chain

Food webs and food chains provide information about the interdependency of plants and animals. A food chain shows a single path of Food Chain Diatomsplants serving as food for some type of animal and that animal serving as food for another animal, etc. A food web shows many interconnections between plants and animals, more like a spider web.If you're interested in something like a food chain lesson plan, biodiversity information, environmental effects on plants and animals, or both sides of the controversy about prophylactic antibiotic use for farm animals, you'll find Bright Hub articles with reliable information.
