Food Chains + Toxin Bioaccumulation


  • HW: Write 2 problems using the trophic level pyramid. One with the biomass of the tertiary consumers already know, and one with the producer's biomass already known. Provide the biomasses for the animals and assume that one field has a biomass of 5,000kg. (Be creative, and keep the numbers simple.)
  • CW: Article annotation + Summary.
