Who are the major producers in a terrestrial ecosystem?
(c) Green plants
This question was posed to me during a job interview.
This intriguing question comes from Ecosystem in chapter Ecosystem of Biology – Class 12
Right answer is (c) Green plants
The best explanation: The green plants (herbaceous and woody plants) are the major producers in a terrestrial ecosystem. Producers (autotrophs) are organisms that are capable of producing their own food (organic molecules) with the help of energy obtained from chemicals or the sun, water, and air (inorganic sources).
