Summary Introduction

To explain: The reason why the given pyramid of biomass is inverted.

Introduction: The energy comes to the Earth from the sun in the form of light. The organisms use the energy source for growth, transfer of energy, oxygen production, and recycling of water and minerals with great efficiency. The interactions among the organisms that lives together in a particular place and interaction among these organisms with their abiotic environment are known as ecosystem.

Explanation of Solution

The total biomass present at each successive trophic level is known as pyramid of biomass. The quantitative estimate of the total mass, or living material, or amount which indicates the amount of secure energy at specific time period is known as biomass...
