Food Webs

The name of the ZeroCarbon Food Webs represents the idea of a carbon-neutral food production and consumption in networks.

A food chain is a series of organisms that eat one another. In the chain, energy and nutrients flow from one organism to the next. Food webs however, consist of many interconnected and intersecting food chains and are thus a more realistic representation of consumption relationships.

We need food webs to represent all the different things a human and other organisms in the food web can eat and be eaten by.
