  • Q13
    Why is the amount of energy available to the next organism in a food pyramid reduced by a factor of 10?
    most of the energy is used for the life processes
    there are more consumers than producers in a ecosystem
    there are more producers than consumers in an ecosystem

  • Q20
    Why are decomposers so important to the flow of energy in a food web?
    decomposers convert light energy from the sun into chemical energy which other organisms eat
    decomposers release the nutrients within dead organisms, making those nutrients available to other organisms
    decomposers are at the top of the energy pyramid so they require a lot of energy
    many different organisms eat decomposers
