What would happen if lions were removed from the food chain?
So if lions are removed from the food chain than the number of deer and other prey will increase and when they will increase in number they will eat more vegetation and decrease the vegetation there so they will disturb the ecosystem.
What is the importance of decomposers to a food web and their interaction with quaternary consumers?
Explain the importance of decomposers to a food web and their interaction with quaternary consumers. Decomposers recycle the nutrients in dead organisms allowing it to travel through the food web cycle, to producers, to the consumers, and repeat.
Which organism in the food web below is found in the first trophic level of the ecosystem?
Producers make up the first trophic level. Producers, also known as autotrophs, make their own food and do not depend on any other organism for nutrition. Most autotrophs use a process called photosynthesis to create food (a nutrient called glucose) from sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water.
What happens when an organism is removed from a food web?
If an organism is removed from a food chain, it will disrupt the energy flow in the ecosystem. The organisms that depend on it will also die.
What happens if all the lions are removed from ecosystem?
Lion is a carnivore. If all the carnivores (lions) are removed from given food chain. It will lead to increase in the number of herbivores (deer) which in turn will lead to decrease in the vegetation (grass) in the ecosystem as all herbivores (deer) feed on plants.
What will happen if producers are removed from a food chain?
The removal of the producers would cause the collapse of the entire food web. Primary consumers or herbivores, which feed on producers directly, would die off. Higher level consumers would suffer as organisms from lower trophic levels start to die off.
What do you think would happen if decomposers and Detritivores were removed from an ecosystem?
Explanation: If decomposers were removed from a food chain, there would be a break down in the flow of matter and energy. Waste and dead organisms would pile up. Producers would not have enough nutrients because, within the waste and dead organisms, nutrients would not be released back into the ecosystem.
Which organism in the food web below is at the highest trophic level?
The highest trophic level is the apex predators. Primary consumers are carnivores that survive on secondary consumers (herbivores).
What happens to the other organism in a food chain when an organism?
What happens to the other organisms in a food chain when an organism in the middle of the food chain is lost? The organisms below it will increase in number, while the organisms above it will decrease in number. The organism that is added will compete for food resources with an existing organism.
