Our Environment - 1 - Question 1

Flow of energy in an ecosystem is always

Detailed Solution for Our Environment - 1 - Question 1
  • The flow of energy in the ecosystem is unidirectional because the energy lost as heat from the living organisms of a food chain cannot be reused by plants in photosynthesis.
  • During the transfer of energy through successive trophic levels in an ecosystem, there is a loss of energy all along the path.
Our Environment - 1 - Question 2

Trophic level in an ecosystem represents

Detailed Solution for Our Environment - 1 - Question 2
  • Organisms occupy a place in the natural surroundings or in a community according to their feeding relationship with other organisms.
  • Based on the source of their nutrition or food, organisms occupy a specific place in the food chain that is known as their trophic level.
  • Producers belong to the first trophic level, herbivores (primary consumer) to the second and carnivores (secondary consumer) to the third.
  • The amount of energy decreases at successive trophic levels

Hence, trophic levels represent energy level as well.

Detailed Solution for Our Environment - 1 - Question 4

A food chain is a linear sequence of organisms through which nutrients and energy pass as one organism eats another. 

(i)  At the base of the food chain lie the primary producers. The primary producers are autotrophs and are most often photosynthetic organisms such as plants, algae, or cyanobacteria.

(ii) Primary consumers are the organisms that eat the primary producers. They are usually herbivores, plant-eaters, though they may be algae eaters or bacteria eaters.

(iii) Secondary consumers are the organisms that eat the primary consumers. They are generally meat-eaters called carnivores.

(iv) Tertiary consumers are the organisms that eat the secondary consumers. These are carnivore-eating carnivores, like eagles or big fish.

Our Environment - 1 - Question 8

Which of the following is non-biodegradable?

Detailed Solution for Our Environment - 1 - Question 8
