Food chain can be defined as series of network in an ecosystem. It shows how the organisms are related with each other by the food they eat.
Energy flow within a terrestrial ecosystem:
Energy from the sun is received by the producer which are plants, produce their food and hence when consumed by the consumer energy is passed, when the consumer which are animals feed on the plant, they absorb energy, use some for body development and when consumed by a higher animal, the energy is also utilised and finally when the organism dies, decomposers act on the organism and in which some energy is used and stored. Energy generally reduces down the food chain.
(i) Plants absorb nutrients from the soil into their roots.
(ii) Animals get nitrogen from plant consumed.
(iii) Ammonication which is part of decaying process.
