The phrase is used to describe the perceived hierarchy of predator and prey animals in an ecosystem.

Each part ofthefoodchain has a name. Plants make (produce) their own food using water, sunlight and carbon dioxide (photosynthesis).

Look atthe very bottomofthefoodchain and you will find them. Plankton are organisms with a name derived from the Greek adjective planktos, meaning “errant”, “wanderer” or “drifter”. Plankton include microscopic plant-like cells (phytoplankton) and the tiny animals that eat them (zooplankton)...
