What can you conclude about an ecosystem with very few trophic levels?
That there are not many producers in the system. it is not a stable ecosystem. ...

What happens to the amount of energy that is transferred from one trophic level to the next?
-energy flows through the ecosystem because Earth is an open energy system -Energy flow through trophic levels in a one way flow of energy and about 10% energy is available as one moves up the trophic levels b/c most of the acquired energy is lost as heat and living organisms cannot transfer heat so only energy stored in chemical bonds can be moved up trophic levels....this makes energy transger between trophic levels VERY inefficient -Basically, the amount of energy available greatly decreases the higher...

What is the highest single number in the world?
The highest single number in the decimal system is 9. The highest single number would vary depending on what base you are using, for instance the highest single number in the binary system is 1. The is no 'highest' number. There is a concecept call infinity but that is not really a number but a mathematical tool. There is no such thing. Anything number that you can think of you can always add one more to it. Some people might say infinity is...

How many numbers does your number system go up to?
There's no limit. You can bring in the smartest, cleverest, most educated and experienced mathematician, and get him to name the highest number he knows of, and I can always name a number that's higher than his number. There's no such thing as the "highest" number. ...

What determines how many tropic levels a rain forest system can support?
The number of producers always determines the how many tropic levels there are in any biome. In any rainforest there can be as many as 4 tropic levels. ...
Asked in Science
Why is it that number of trophic levels minimise to 4 or 5?
The autotrophs are at 1st level, herbivores come under 2nd level, small carnivores or secondary consumers form 3rd level, and larger carnivores form 4th level. As we know that interactions among various components of the environment involves flow of energy from one component of the system to another. As we have studied that producers capture energy present in sunlight and convert them into chemical energy, from autotrophs, the energy goes to heterotrophs and decomposers. When one form of energy is changed to another,...

What do number systems mean?
Number systems are usually based on something. Our number system is based on 10; this is because we have 10 fingers. If we had 8 fingers then our system would be based on 8. Then we would have a completely different system. In this system, 11 would come after 8 because 8 is the highest number in the system, so after you reach 8 you start over but you increase the number in front by 1. ...

The last number of the numbers?
The Last Number of the Numbers is the Highest Number in a Series of Symbols used to describe any other Set of Numbers. In the Decimal System the Highest Number is 9. 0-9 are used to describe any other Set of Values, be it 11, 1000, 1.949321, the actual numbers involved are 0-9 thus the Highest Number is 9. The last number ever would be infinity. ...
What is the highest place value in a decimal system?
The highest place value in the decimal system is the aleph null'th place. It should be noted that aleph null is an infinite number (in fact, it is the smallest infinity possible) and represents the cardinality of the natural number set. In other words, there is no finite number which is the highest place value in the decimal system. (The Aleph character breaks Answers.com's WYSIWYG editor. The Aleph null character looks like: 0א except that the 0 is on the other side of...
