Hi All,
What does "energy" refers to in this quote, "Hermit crabs are scavengers, helping to recycle energy back into the ecosystem."

    I think we need the sentence before this and the sentence after this in order to understand how the crabs recycle energy.

    The sentences before and after don't add anything to the fact that the main source of energy for animals (hermit crabs and forum moderators alike) is food. Which is what they recycle.
