What is biomass describe the pyramid of biomass in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem?
Biomass pyramids show their relative amount of biomass in each of the trophic levels of an ecosystem. Terrestrial ecosystems contain more biomass in plants like trees, grass. Aquatic biomass pyramids show little bit different that is tend to be inverted due to the dynamics of the consumers and producers.
Why is the aquatic pyramid of biomass is always inverted?
Note: The pyramid of Biomass in sea is always generally inverted because the Biomass of fishes far exceeds that of phytoplankton. A number of generations of phytoplankton methods are consumed by the single generation of zooplanktons.
How do you find the biomass pyramid?
To complete this calculation, we divide the amount from the higher trophic level by the amount from the lower trophic level and multiply by one hundred. That is, we divide the smaller number by the bigger one (and multiply by one hundred).
Which of the following explains the inversion of the aquatic pyramid of biomass?
High phytoplankton turnover rate : explains the inversion of the aquatic pyramid of biomass.
