Question

according to the ten percent law, only about 10% of the energy consumed makes it from one trophic level to the next. with this in mind, if you started with 1,000 calories of willow leaves, how many calories would make it to each of these other animals?

Answer

Only around 10% of the energy contained in food is stored in animal tissue. Food refers to any substance that is rich in nutrients and is consumed or absorbed by humans, animals, or plants in order to sustain life and growth. Nutrients are substances that provide energy for bodily functions such as digestion, respiration, and maintaining body temperature, as well as promoting growth and healing, and maintaining a healthy immune system. Eating habits are characterized as "deliberate, social, and habitual behaviors, which cause individuals to choose, consume, and utilize certain foods or diets, in response to cultural and societal influences".
