The leaf now opens and remains of insects fall down. They are respectively known as autotrophic (autos = self, trophien = to nourish) and heterotrophic (heteros - other, trophien - to nourish). Fungal and bacterial saprotrophs are referred to as saprophyte, while animal saprotrophs are called saprozoites. Autotrophs chemosynthesis. The marginal spines get interlocked and insects is trapped. In this article, we will learn about the characteristics of these two types of organisms, and understand how they interact with each other in an ecosystem. Thus saprotrophs aid the recycling of materials from dead organisms to living ones.
Autotrophs and heterotrophs are two types of biotic components of an ecosystem. The digestive glands secrete juice and digest the insects and absorbed. Autotroph au·to·troph (ô'tə-trŏf', -trōf') n.

Autotrophs synthesize organic materials from inorganic materials.
Roots develop haustoria that make contact with roots of Dalbergia, Eucalyptus etc. The two lobes of lamina snap together. An organism capable of synthesizing its own food from inorganic substances using light or chemical energy.

Saprotrophs are decomposers and liberate energy for their own use by breaking down complex organic matter from the dead bodies of other organisms. At the same time this process releases vital chemical elements into the soil which are absorbed by autotrophs. Some organisms derive their energy for this process from sunlight and are called photoautotrophs.
Green plants, algae, and certain bacteria are autotrophs. Partial root parasite is Santalum, sandal wood tree, an evergreen plant which grows at many places in India. Plants may be able to obtain raw materials and prepare their own organic food or can be dependent on others (dead or living) for the same.
