. Green plants are called as ___ since they synthesize their own food
Ans. Green plants are called autotrophs since they are able to synthesize their own food.
Autotrophs are defined as an organism that manufactures their own food from inorganic substances, similar to carbon dioxide and ammonia. During photosynthesis, plants consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen gas. The green plants have chlorophyll in their leaves. The food synthesized by the plants is stored in the form of starch. Photoautotrophs are similar to light. They take up carbon dioxide and release oxygen which is consumed by us.
Plants are the only organisms that can make food for themselves by photosynthesis. The raw stuff is present in their surroundings. The mode of nutrition in which organisms prepare food themselves from simple substances is known as autotrophic nutrition.
