Plants are the "producers" of our world because they can create their own nutrients through photosynthesis.
Animals, as the “consumers” of the food chain, live off the bounty of these producers. Thus, we need to call upon the help of “decomposers”.
In turn, the “decomposers” generate the nutrients which are essential to the growth of plants.
Every one of these groups is an integral part of a larger community of organisms,and I produced this work as a symbol of coexistence between nature and living creatures.
The title, Silva, is the Latin word for forest.
