Unit 3. Revision notes as per syllabus specifications. Grade 12.Mr. Stafford Valentine Redden, Department of biology, CHSE, Male, 2004.
1
Unit 3: Energy and the Environment
3.1 Modes of nutrition
Autotrophic and Heterotrophic nutrition
?
Understand the basic principles of Autotrophic and Heterotrophic modes of nutrition (no detailsof photosynthesis or digestion are required).
Autotrophic nutrition:
organismsprepare their own food.Synthesise large complex organic molecules (glucose), using simple inorganicsubstances (CO
2
and H
2
O) and energy(solar) from the environment.Photosynthetic/ chemosynthetic.
Heterotrophic:
organismscannot prepare their own food.Obtain energy from the breakdown of complex readymade organic molecules,obtained from the environment. (holozoic, parasitic, saprobiontic)
Holozoic nutrition
?
Understand that holozoic nutrition involves the feeding on organic matter from the bodies of other organisms (no details of digestion are required)
Holozoic nutrition is the feeding on organic matter from the bodies of otherorganisms. A complex digestive system is involved. It usually involves ingestion,digestion, absorption, assimilation and egestion. eg. humans.
?
understand the adaptations of Herbivores and Carnivores to their diet, as illustrated by a named ruminant and a named carnivore.
Herbivore/ Ruminant (sheep)Carnivore/ Predators (dog)
Incisors and canines on lower jaw areused to crop leaves against a hornypad on upper jaw.Sharp incisors to hold prey and removeflesh from bones.Premolars andmolars are broad andhave raised cusps togrind leaves.Large pointedcanines forholding preyand tearingflesh.Diastema (agap betweencanines andpremolars) ispresent toallow manipulation of the food bolus.Carnassial teeth (fourth premolar ofupper jaw and first molar of lower jaw)are sharp to slice / cut flesh.Loose jaw articulation allows sidewaysmovement of lower jaw to enhancegrinding of leaves.Strong jaw muscles to hold and killprey.Rumen contains microorganisms todigest cellulose, which is a majorcomponent of theherbivore diet.Sharp vision / claws make themefficient hunters.

Saprobiontic and parasitic nutrition
?
Understand saprobiontic and parasitic modes of nutrition as illustrated by Rhizopus and Taenia(details of their life histories are not required)

Mutualism- nutrition
?
Understand mutualistic mode of nutrition as illustrated by Rhizobium with Papilionaceae and cellulose – digesting organisms in ruminant.
Rhizobium – Papilionaceae mutualism
( both livingtogether and benefiting each other)Rhizobium (bacteria) lives in root nodules of Papilionaceaeplants. Rhizobium benefits by getting carbohydrates fromthe plant. The plant benefits by obtaining ammoniaproduced by Rhizobium. Plant can survive in nitrogendeficient soil.
N from air

3
H ions fromcarbohydratemetabolism of plant

Cellulose digestion in ruminants (mutualism)
Bacteria and yeast present in rumen digest cellulose (a major component of thediet) for the herbivore
