Question and answer
Q: Because photosynthesis only occurs in plants, why is it essential to animal life?
A: According to the biophysicist Alfred Lotka's principles of thermodynamics, the energy retained by a primary producer is transferred to the herbivore that consumes it. [ Similarly, when a carnivore consumes an herbivore the energy of the herbivore, to which the primary producer contributed, is transferred to the carnivore. This process of energy transfer is called the food chain and describes the
transfer of energy through an ecosystem. Because energy begins with primary producers, all organisms in an ecosystem indirectly rely on photosynthesis. Read more: Why Is Photosynthesis Important for All Organisms? | eHow.com ]
