Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, , pp. The Terrestrial Biosphere and Global Change: Implications for Natural and Managed Ecosystems can be thought of as energy transformers and nutrient processors composed of organisms within a food web that require continual input of energy to balance that lost during metabolism, growth, and reproduction. These organisms are either ‘primary producers’ (autotrophs), which derive their energy by using sunlight to convert inorganic carbon into organic carbon, or ‘secondary

These biotic and abiotic components are linked together through nutrient cycles and energy flows. Energy enters the system through photosynthesis and is incorporated into plant tissue. By feeding on plants and on one another, animals play an important
