Above you can see two different food webs, where basically plants are eaten by birds, which are eaten by foxes. Also, spiders and insects are present, which are eaten by owls. Creating an interrelating food chain. Please see above different combinations that are made, especially in the second food web, which show much more tangling between food chains than thos in the first food web. At the bottom are the producers, then come the primary consumers, the secodnary consumers, the tertiary consumers and so on.
