Nutrition of organisms which need ready made complex organic molecules,they obtain these wither directlyfrom plants,or from organismswhich have fed on plants.Thus heterotrophic organisms are the consumers in an ecosystem.
Animals and most other organisms take in ready made food prepared by the plants.They are called as heterotrophs (heteros=other trophs = noursishment) nutrition. Some plants also depend on the food produced by the other plants.They use heterotrophic mode of nutrition.
sometimes plants lack the availability of sufficient minerals and water so they depend on the other organism for their food.plants which use this type of nutrition are called heterotrophs.
Animals and most other organisms take in ready made food prepared by the plants.They are called Hetrotrophs.
the mode of nutrition also seen in plants by which they directly consume other insects.
Hetrotrophic is the act of taking food from other decaying plants and animals because that some plants don't have the ability to produce food due to the lack of chlorophyll. if you need some examples you could take mushrooms,they won't produce food they feed on dead and decaying organisms , and thats why the grow on places like that.
