Introduction

Introduction

Definitions of heterotrophic on the Web:

Refers to organisms, such as animals, that depend on preformed organic molecules from the environment (or another organism) as a source of nutrients/energy. www.emc.maricopa.edu/faculty/farabee/BIOBK/BioBookglossH.html

Requiring organic substrates for growth and development; being incapable of synthesizing required organic materials from inorganic sources. (20) ppathw3.cals.cornell.edu/glossary/Defs_H.htm

obtaining nourishment from organic substances, not from food produced within the organism. www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/canwaters-eauxcan/bbb-lgb/library-bibliotheque/glossary-glossaire/index_e.asp

Slide 3

unable to derive energy from photosynthesis or from inorganic chemical reactions, and so dependent on energy-containing organic compounds derived from the current or prior existence of other organisms, cf. AUTOTROPHIC. www.mycolog.com/GLOSSARY.htm

unable to derive energy from photosynthesis or from inorganic chemical reactions, and so dependent on energy-containing organic compounds derived from the current or prior existence of other organisms, cf. AUTOTROPHIC. www.mycolog.com/GLOSSARY.htm

Describing consumers, organisms that cannot synthesize food from inorganic materials and therefore must use the bodies of other organisms as a source of energy and body-building materials.* biology.usgs.gov/s+t/noframe/z999.htm

An organism incapable of producing organic compound from inorganic materials and thus must rely on other living or dead organisms for its food supply.www.botanyvt.com/pages/dictionary.shtml

The concentration of carbon in living matter (18%) is almost 100 times greater than its concentration in the earth (0.19%).

The concentration of carbon in living matter (18%) is almost 100 times greater than its concentration in the earth (0.19%).

So living things extract carbon from their nonliving environment. For life to continue, this carbon must be recycled.

Slide 7

Carbon exists in the nonliving environment as:

Carbon exists in the nonliving environment as:

Carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and dissolved in water (forming HCO3−)

Carbonate rocks (limestone and coral = CaCO3)

Deposits of coal, petroleum, and natural gas derived from once-living things

Dead organic matter, e.g., humus in the soil
