Mitochonria are organelles that take in nutrients,

Mitochondria break them down and create energy. They are

involved in cellular respiration

Food Web

The food web is important to sustainable food systems because in each

level you are loosing energy through heat. So by eating producers, we are

An ecosystem is a biological community of interacting

organisms and their physical environment. Water evaporates from
water sources on earth.

community on the environment, and how much land
is required to sustain their use of natural resources.
Ecological Footprint The water cycle is important to our sustainable food systems because everything
on earth needs water to survive. We cannot have our food without water.
Ecological footprint is related to sustainable food systems, because if
our ecological footprint is large, then we are not being sustainable. We
need to learn to reduce this to maintain sustainable food systems.

Soil is very important for a sustainable world. We need healthy

soil to grow crops that feed livestock, and humans. If the soil is Soil
bad, we cannot have crops and in turn we would not have food.

increasing food production, we are using up more land,
which is destroying the land for the species that live there.
DNA is what contains our genetic code and is composed of four
chemical basse: adenine, guanine, thymine and cytosine.
Climate change is the change of climate patters that we are seeing globally.

Pesticides include herbicides for destroying weeds and other unwanted Organic produce and other ingredients are grown without the use of
vegetation, insecticides for controlling a wide variety of insects, fungicides used pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or genetically modied organism's.
to prevent the growth of molds and mildew, disinfectants for preventing the Organic
spread of bacteria, and compounds used to control mice and rats.
By having organic food, we are reducing pesticides and
herbicides that are leaked back into our water systems.
Pesticides can contaminate soil, water, turf, and other vegetation. This affects our
food systems because they can be harmful to humans and our environment.
Adaption is any alteration in the structure or function of an organism or
Adaption any of its parts that results from natural selection and by which the
organism becomes better tted to survive and multiply in its environment.

Biodiversity is the variability of life between species and ecosystems.

It is important to sustainable food systems because with the less biodiversity that Biodiversity
we have, the more possibility we have that species will go extinct. These could be
