Aquatic Food Webs

Many plants and animals are found in and around aquatic ecosystems. These plants and animals depend on one another for food.

The arrows → show which organism supplies the next with food in the food web.

Algae → small fish → frog → crane

When two or more food chains come together it is called a food web. Ponds (below) may exist for just a short while, during the rainy season, or may continue to exist for years. Organisms adapt and many animals will either migrate(move to another habitat) or die.
