Example text

13 The mass of all organisms in an area or ecosystem is known as ‘Biomass’. While assessing mass at each trophic level and then plotting it, it forms a ‘Pyramid’ in which the mass of producers is far greater than each of the consumers (primary, secondary and tertiary). Whenever an organism eats another, not all the energy is transferred but only about 10% of the energy of a producer is transferred to the consumer that eats it. This leads to progressive loss of energy at each level of a food chain.

Can we Minimize ACCIDENTS? The answer lies in the fact that pollution and accidents cannot be avoided but they can certainly be minimized. 2 Damage due to industrialization 1, 2, 4, 9, 10 The damages that have been caused by industrialization are cropping up. Let us understand what has happened in the past. It is very difficult to calculate damages caused by air pollution and the remedy is even more expensive. But the following estimates are instructive. 5 billion in the rest of the world. Damages to agricultural products, forests and human health exceeded US$ 10 billion.

As stated above in an ecosystem living things interact with themselves as well as with the nonliving things in a particular region. The ecosystem cannot satisfy all the needs of the living things in a habitat, particularly food and water. As such only a limited number of the same types of living populations can survive there and that is why many animals defend their areas which they consider as a suitable space for their living. This creates ‘Competition’ which is a struggle amongst the living things to get proper and adequate space, food, water and energy.
