autotroph

(= lithotroph) Organisms that synthesize all their organic molecules from inorganic materials (carbon dioxide, salts etc.). May be photo-autotrophs or chemo-autotrophs, depending upon the source of the energy. Also known as lithotrophic organisms.

Autotroph

Organisms which obtain energy from the sun and utilises CO2 as sole source of carbon e.g. plants and some bacteria (contrast with heterotroph).

Autotroph

An autotroph{Ref label|A|α|none} (`self-feeding`, from the Greek autos `self` and trophe `nourishing`) or `producer`, is an organism that produces complex organic compounds (such as carbohydrates, fats, and proteins) from simple substances present in its surroundings, generally using energy from light (photosynthesis) or inorganic chemica...

autotroph

Any organism that is able to manufacture its own food. Most plants are autotrophs, as are many protists and bacteria. Contrast with consumer. Autotrophs may be photoautotrophic, using light energy to manufacture food, or chemoautotrophic, using chemical energy.

Autotroph

(pronounced AW-toh-trofe) An autotroph (or producer) is an organism that makes its own food from light energy or chemical energy (inorganic matter) without eating. Most green plants, many protists (one-celled organisms like slime molds) and most bacteria are autotrophs. Autotrophs are the base of the food chain.
