Food web

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A food web is similar to a food chain, only bigger. Food webs show how plants and animals are connected in many ways to help them all survive, unlike food chains that just follow one path.

For example, a tree produces acorns - this is called the producer. Mice, squirrels, and insects eat these acorns and because there are many mice, the weasels, snakes and raccoons have food. With insects in the acorns, other predators would be attracted (like skunks or opossums) and therefore, foxes, hawks or owls could all find food.

Food webs can be effected in many ways considering the urban areas of major countries are taking no action and care.
