A food chain is the sequence of who eats whom in a biological community (an ecosystem)
to obtain nutrition. A food chain starts with the primary energy source, usually the sun or
boiling-hot deep sea vents. The next link in the chain is an organism that make its own food
from the primary energy source -- an example is photosynthetic plants that make their own
food from sunlight (using a process called photosynthesis) and chemosynthetic bacteria
that make their food energy from chemicals in hydrothermal vents. These are called
autotrophs or primary producers.
