Learn about the concept of the food web or food chain with some of the examples that we have provided in the following food web diagrams. This diagram is a tool to understand how food chains and food webs represent the flow of energy and matter. These examples of the diagram show you the feeding relationships in an ecosystem. Check out the diagrams in the following images below.
Food webs are limited representations of real ecosystems that include functional groups of species that have the same predators and prey in a food web. The length of a chain is the number of links between a trophic consumer and the base of the web. The mean chain length of an entire web is the arithmetic average of the lengths of all chains in a food web. The population of species in a food chain is shown using a pyramid of numbers, just like what we have in the following food webs diagrams.
The fundamental purpose of food webs is to describe the feeding relationship among species in a community. Food webs can be constructed to describe species interactions. All species in the food webs can be distinguished into autotrophs, such as plants, herbivores, and intermediate levels carnivores, such as grasshopper and scorpion or top predators as a fox.
