1. Trophic Levels

1.1. Producers

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

1.2. Primary Consumers

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

1.3. Secondary Consumers

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

1.4. Tertiary Consumers

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