Among the producers and consumers, which is of prime importance?

Dear Student,

Organisms that produce their own food from simple inorganic substances such as water and carbon dioxide are called producers. Examples are green plants and blue-green algae.
Organisms that consume the food prepared by producers are called consumers. Examples are cows and human beings.

In an ecosystem, both producers and consumers play an important role. Producers play the role of converting solar energy into food that is consumed by the consumers. Hence, they can be considered to have more importance than consumers.
