30 The fate of the energy of food eaten by a heterotrophic herbivore. Fig. 29 The fungus Penicillium sp. (x 90). Of the food consumed, some energy is lost in faeces and in the hydrolysis of food molecules. Monosaccharides, fatty acids and amino acids, are absorbed by the cells of the digestive tract and then transported around the body of the organism. Some molecules are used directly in the replacement of cell components, growth and reproduction. Other molecules are catabolized, providing energy and intermediates for anabolism.

7. Electrons from sulphur compounds enter the electron transport chain of the sulphur bacteria at a variety of points (Fig. 26). The transfer of electrons to molecular oxygen as electron acceptor leads to the synthesis of ATP. Until recently, it was thought that chemolithotrophs contributed relatively little to the overall primary productivity of the biosphere. However, some colourless sulphur bacteria obtain their energy from reduced compounds in the heated mineral waters of thermal vents in the deep rifts of oceans.
