What are Autotrophs?
This post will be an introduction to the nutrient and gas requirements topic and will go through autotrophs for Prelim Biology.
Autotrophs vs Heterotrophs
Autotrophs are essentially organisms that can produce their own food while heterotrophs need to consume other organisms because they cannot produce their own food. This video explains it in greater detail.
Structure of Autotrophs
The main autotrophs that will be studied in Prelim Biology are plants. This video will go through some cool plant structures and adaptations.
The place where plants mainly produce their food is in the leaves, this video will go through the structure of a leaf.
