What are heterotrophs also called?


A heterotroph is any type of living organism that cannot receive carbon from carbon dioxide. Heterotrophs instead receive carbon from feeding on other organisms. All animals are considered heterotrophs, unlike plants who can synthesize nutrients from sunlight and carbon dioxide. An autotroph is the opposite of a heterotroph, and refers to organisms such as plants who can receive carbon from carbon dioxide. Heterotrophs are also called consumers, because they feed off of other organisms to survive.
