i. ____________________ Autotrophic nutrition
is the process by which organisms make their
own food from ___________ compounds ex Plants
___________ use photosynthesis for
autotrophic nutrition ____________
_________ ? Sugar Oxygen convert simple
inorganic compounds to complex organic compounds

ii. _____________________ Heterotrophic
