Example of an ecological pyramid Introduction (what they are) Getting food is the same as getting energy to stay alive and perform the most diverse biological functions. All living things are part of some food chain. Ecological pyramids are representations of the energy flow that happens in all food chains.
A living cell’s primary tasks of obtaining, transforming, and using energy to do work may seem simple. Strictly speaking, no energy transfer is completely efficient, because some energy is lost in an unusable form.An important concept in physical systems is that of order and disorder (also known as randomness).
