Producers: trees and bushes
Herbivore: whitetail deer Carnivore: wolf Decomposer: mushroom
Representatives of the four basic ecological guilds: producers (green plants), herbivores or primary consumers, carnivores or secondary consumers, and decomposers

Ecology is a consistent thread that runs through many of my books about nature and wildlife. Individual kinds of animal are interesting, but it's equally interesting to get an impression of how different kinds of animals fit together in a natural ecosystem. And it ties directly and naturally to the subject of conservation.
