The Food Web Room

How and what do sea organisms eat? Which type of food relationships link different animals and plants? What is a food web? Understanding how food and energy are passed on from one organism to another is essential to understand the complexity of marine ecosystems. This room displays the fundamental elements of food webs, and visitors may easily turn theory into practice by using the interactive keys on the teeth of sea animals and learn about their particular and curious feeding habits. They may also create their own food web using a panel with special blocks. Direct experimentation helps the awareness of the extremely plastic relationships between prey and predators, the fundamental contribution provided by each element of the marine web, and the delicate balance regulating it.
