food chains/food webs
Explanation:
"Food Chain, Food Web (Biology)
The food chain is all of the interactions between predators and prey in which plants and animals obtain nutrition. The chain starts with plants or other autotrophs (organisms that make their own food from light and/or chemical energy) that are eaten by herbivores (plant-eaters). The herbivores are eaten by carnivores (meat-eaters). These are eaten by other carnivores. When any organism dies, it is eaten by tiny microbes (detrivores) and the exchange of energy continues."

Food chain


Explanation:
I think it is probably unnecessary to translate both "cadeias" and "teias" as the end result is the same. Hope this helps.
