Question

A pyramid of energy is an upright pyramid that illustrates the flow of energy from consumers to producers.

  1. True
  2. False

hintHint:

Because the energy flow in a food chain is always unidirectional, the energy pyramid is always upright.

The correct answer is 'False'.


    Producers to consumers
    • The least efficient use of energy is by producers.
    • All other creatures in the ecosystem are consumers known as heterotrophs, and they all rely on the main producers for food and energy, either directly or indirectly.
    • The first level of the energy pyramid is made up of the producers and the energy contained inside them.
