Fungi, non-photosynthetic bacteria and other organisms and animals are the components of heterotrophic. Consumers are organism like herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores in the order of occurrence in the food chain. Herbivores feed on plants, carnivores feed on animal and omnivores feed on both plants and animals. Herbivores are also called as primary consumers and carnivores and omnivores are known as secondary and tertiary consumers, respectively. Decomposers are also known as sapotrophs and consist mainly bacteria and fungi. They break down complex compounds of the dead organisms, absorb some of the decomposed or breakdown products and release inorganic nutrients into the environment, thus making them available again to the autotrophs.
