Erika's Environmental Science Mind Map

Trophic Levels

Producers

They convert the suns energy to food energy, their energy gets passed to Primary Consumers; however, only 10% of the energy gets passed.

Primary Consumers

Primary Consumers get 10% of the sun's energy. They pass 10% of the energy they have to Secondary Consumers.

Secondary Consumers

Secondary Consumers get 1% of the sun's energy. They pass 10% of the energy they have to Tertiary Consumers.

Tertiary Consumers

Tertiary Consumers get .1% of the sun's energy. They would pass 10% of the energy they have to whoever eats them.

Indicator Species

Indicator Species can show whether or not an ecosystem is healthy, if an indicator species is present this normally means there are good living conditions, because indicator species can only live in certian conditions.
