There are a lot of differences between an autotrophs and heterotrophs. The autotrophs have the ability to manufacture their own food from the inorganic raw materials. They extract them from the outside source. They reside on the inorganic medium and require an external source of ...

The ecosystem is affected by the winds also. The winds are also known as air currents. The most of gymnosperms are pollinated by the wind and this phenomenon is known as anemophily. The wind also helps in the dispersal of seeds, fruits, cysts and many ...
