Glossary of Terms & Definitions
A person or other animal who uses things: a rabbit is a consumer of grass; a coyote is a consumer of
rabbits. In nature, there are two kinds of consumers, primary and secondary. The rabbit, as a consumer of plants,
is a primary consumer. The coyote is a secondary consumer. (Since the rabbit is essentially made out of rearranged
grass, the coyote, by eating the rabbit, is consuming the plants secondarily, and so is a secondary consumer.)
