Trophic level is a group of organisms that occupy the same position in a food chain. An organisms trophic level is determined by its position in a food chain against all levels Producers(Level 1), Herbivores(Level 2), Predators(Level 3), and Carnivores as Level 4 or 5.
Trophic levels are the positions of organisms in a food chain. Energy is transferred through the trophic levels through ingestion at each level.
A group of organisms that occupy the same position in a food chain.
Monkeys can only occupy one which is the secondary consumer
Yes, but im not sure why.
The group of organisms that occupy the second trophic level of an ecosystem is the herbivores. The herbivores eat the plants in the first trophic level and are then called primary consumers. -Gallo :)
Which organisms recycle the organic molecules of dead organisms at all trophic levels and return their nutrients to the environment?
Decomposers recycle the organic molecules of dead organisms at all trophic levels and return their nutrients to the environment. These are often insects.
Because the energy levels at +2 more than the - energy
The number of organisms and the amount of energy decreases as you move up through the trophic levels.
trophic levels :)
A foodchain shows the feeding relationships of organisms from successive trophic levels.
Organisms in each trophic level pass on significantly less energy to the next trophic levels compared to what they received. As the amount of energy gets smaller, the ability to sustain life is lost, hence an unlimited number of trophic levels is not possible.
There are not enough organisms in every environment to keep trophic levels going. For instance, there is always a top predator that has virtually no enemies.
"Trophic" is directly related to bio-physical shape. So the lowest trophic levels will reflect those Organisms that do not have much shape - worms, slugs, fungi, molds and bacteria.
The various trophic levels will regulate a population when organisms feed on other organisms. The different levels are producers, consumers and decomposers which help in maintaining the nutrient cycle.
The biomass of organisms at each level decrease by 90% as the levels increase.
Plants, algae, and bacteria occupy the first trophic level of an organism.
It is important for an organism to belong to a lower trophic level because the lower levels receive more energy for their food. Organisms on the higher levels also rely on all the lower levels.
The armadillo eats insects, grubs, particularly ants and termites. It eats a similar diet to birds. They consume level three and four consumers. They occupy both of these trophic levels.
Energy must be transformed within ecosystems so that it is made available to other organisms. Energy is produced by producing organisms at the lowest trophic level, and then moves up to higher trophic levels to other consuming organisms.
What type of pyramid shows the relative numbers of individual organisms at the trophic levels in an ecosystem?
a pyramid or energy :)
What kind of pyramid shows the relative numbers of individual organisms at the trophic levels in an ecosystem?
The pyramid of numbers
it can be A)The ecosystem will not be able to support as many tertiary consumers. B)It will decrease the amount of energy transferred to higher trophic levels. C)The ecosystem will be able to support more organisms at higher trophic levels.Eliminate D)The ecosystem will become stagnant due to excess producers and organisms in higher trophic levels will die out.
Photsynthesis is important to all trophic levels because it provides the energy needed by living things in all levels. Photosynthesis is how plants (in the autotrophic level) convert sunlight into the energy they need. Since animals in the higher trophic levels obtain energy by consuming other organisms, they are ultimatly dependant on photosynthesis too.
Producers generally have the highest biomass. Producers are photosynthetic organisms in most environments, such as plants and phytoplankton; they support the bottom of the food web and trophic levels.
Successive stages of nourishment as represented by the links of the food chain. According to a grossly simplified scheme the primary producers (ie, phytoplankton) constitute the first trophic level, herbivorous zooplankton the second trophic level, and carnivorous organisms the third trophic level.
the steps are known as trophic levels as move down the levels energy from the organisms tends to be lost to the environment

What happens to the amount of energy as it flows to from lower trophic levels to higher trophic levels?
Not all the energy is past on to the different tohpic levels, energy is lost through respiration, movement, feaces, decomposition, keeping warm and growth. Some amount of energy is also in the bones of the organisms because they are not eaten.
Higher trophic levels are animals that are higher up on the food chain. When animals lower on the food chain get effected by pollutants, it transfers to the animal that eats that one. And so on. So the animals on the higher trophic level eat the most animals(animals with the pollutants).
all organisms feed on different levels. these are called trophic levels. eg: the grass outside can be fed on by cows and horses or basically herbivores. therefore, herbivores are said to feed on one trophic level. likewise, carnivores all feed on another trophic level but omnivores can feed on two because the consume both meat and plants its food source
Virtually. The base of the trophic pyramid is made up of primary producers that provide energy to all the trophic levels above it. Most primary producers get their energy from light, converting light energy to organic compounds via photosynthesis, and therefore all trophic levels that feed on them are dependent on light. There are, however, some organisms that can live independent of light (chemoautotrophs). They derive their energy from chemical reactions. However these organisms are… Read More
Ecosystems with more trophic levels tend to be more stable than those with fewer trophic levels.
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… Read More
In an ecosystem, energy flows through trophic levels. The source of energy is the sun, which is used by organisms that can perform photosynthesis (plants, algae, etc.) which make up the first trophic level. The second trophic level is made up of primary consumers, or herbivores, that eat plants and use energy from the plants. The third trophic level is secondary consumers, or omnivores; The fourth trophic level is tertiary consumers/predators; The fifth trophic level… Read More
its in the trophic level it lives in.. its in the trophic level it lives in..
Each of several hierarchical levels in an ecosystem, consisting of organisms sharing the same function in the food chain.
Mosquitos can be of many different trophic levels, as they consume the blood of animals from multiple trophic levels.
wolves and lions are at the same trophic level because why?
Due to poor trophic transfer efficiency, most energy is lost at higher trophic levels.
As the trophic levels increase the biomass decreases.
The food web is made up of different levels labeled as trophic levels. Chimpanzee's belong on the 3rd trophic level.
Producers, (plants) occupy the first trophic level. Herbivores occupy the 2nd trophic level and are considered primary consumers. Carnivores that eat herbivores occupy the 3rd trophic level and are considered secondary consumers. Carnivores that eat other carnivores occupy the 4th trophic level and are considered tertiary consumers. snakes- eat other snakes, alligators- eat snakes and other small carnivores, bears- eat fish that eat other fish.
Is it true that Organisms such as deer that eat low on a food chain generally eat food with more of the initial energy that entered the system than organisms at higher trophic levels such as wolves?
true. for plato
there can be any number of trophic levels, but usually 4-5
The trophic level is the level in the food chain that an animal occupies. The armadillo belongs to both the second and third trophic levels.
Organisms can cause changes in their environment to ensure survival in various ways. This happens through the various processes that cause organisms in different trophic levels to interact from producers to consumers and to decomposers.
