The Trophic Pyramid

The trophic pyramid depicts how energy is created by the producers and illustrates how at each trophic level the number of organisms in the environment of that trophic level become fewer as we reach the top of the pyramid. This is due to energy which is used by individuals for biological processes and this energy is not passed on to the following level when the organism dies. Thus at each level there is less energy directly available.
