What is the advantage of using a biomass pyramid instead of using a number pyramid?
The pyramid of biomass gives a more accurate assessment of total energy at each trophic level since a pyramid of numbers does not take into account the size of the organisms.
How do you create a biomass pyramid?
i tried to google it but it shows no results. can anyone help me

How is energy lost in a biomass pyramid?
Heat energy is lost to its surroundings (around you).
Also, animals lose energy through their faeces, movement and respiration as well for example.
That’s why it’s a pyramid shape because energy is lost after each stage.
Hope that helps!
What is a pyramid of biomass, pyramid of numbers and a pyramid of energy?
i really really need the answer right now! ASAP thanks
This is a very general model of the balance of energy in the environment, notice how like when your looking at say a pyramid of animals and plants, the plants are always at the bottom in the largest segment? That’s because that’s where the most mass and energy is. There are more plants and auto-trophs then any other organism on earth. As you go further up these pyramids, there is less and less energy available. For example the top of these pyramids often consists of upper epsilon or apex predators, on land lions tigers and bears(oh my) and in the ocean its sharks and some species of whales. There are far fewer total organisms here and therefore far less energy and mass at these levels then compared to lower levels.
