Autotrophic nutrition-
it is a mode of nutrition in which living organisms prepare their own food with the help of raw materials available in the environment. eg: photosynthesis in green plants, thus they are called autotrophs.

heterotrophic nutrition-
in this mode of nutrition living organisms depend on other living organisms for food and are not capable of making their own food.  eg: human beings depend on plants for food,
thus they are called heterotrophs.
