I have a question Mr. Jones, what is an example of a food chain?
Imagine an ecosystem, such as a pond.
That pond is home to both biotic and abiotic factors, or living and non living things...
...Such as frogs and sunlight.
Plants convert that sunlight into energy using photosynthesis...
and that frog eats a grasshopper. The frog then becomes a secondary consumer.
That frog only gets 100 kcals from the 1,000 that grasshopper had because some of it was lost to heat
Now lets say that frog is eaten by a snake, which are carnivores and only eat meat...
That snake only gets 10 kcals from the frog because even more was lost to heat
...and that snake is then eaten by an eagle, which is a generalist, who eats a variety of foods.
Now that eagle is only left with 1 kcal.
Wow! Thanks Mr. Jones, you just made ecology so much easier!
Now that Cody, is an example of a food chain.
