# The meaning of consumers is that the organisms which obtain food directly from autotrophs or indirectly from hetrotrophs but we have got that consumers are divided into herbivores carnivores and omnivores but in this definition herbivores and carnivores are also included but herbivores depend only on autotrophs and carnivores eat only hetrotrophs i'd like to know if herbivores and carnivores are also included in consumers ??amd why???... Thankyou
