For our summitive on the different types of biomes
THE SAVANNA LIFE
The savanna is a biome located in Africa, Australia, South America, and a small part of India. This biome is said to be dry, warm, boring, scattered with trees and brush, and filled with all different types of carnivors, herbivors, and omnivors.
The autotrophs of the savanna include lemon, rhodes, and burmuda grass plus, baobab, jackelberry trees, and many more. Autotrophs or producers are the plant life of a biome, they are called autotrophs because the can feed themselves automatically by taking energy from the sun.
The heterotrophs or consumers of the savanna come in all sorts, like cheetahs a carnivore, giraffes a herbivore, and the jackal an omnivore. Heterotrophs are animals that have to eat other organisms to gain energy.
The main decomposers of the savanna are dung beetles, earthworms, and bacteria. The decomposers role in the ecosystem is to clean up the waste including (excrement, animal carcasses, and dead plants) making the savanna a cleaner place, and giving it richer soil.

This is a food web on the plants and animals of the savanna. A food web is usually started off with a food chain which usually has 4 organisms. Some of the bigger animals don't have anybody eating them, because they either use strength, speed, or height.
I have an energy pyramid. For this energy pyramid I chose 4 organisms from my food web, and put them in an order where the producer is at the bottom and the apex predator is at the top. The number is to represent how much energy the organism gives out, and each round it goes down 10%
