What are the Trophic Levels?

Each organism occupies a particular position in a food chain depending on its feeding relationship with other organisms. This position is known as the trophic level.  It is important to note that the amount of energy decreases at successive trophic levels.

When an organism dies it is converted to detritus. It then serves as an energy source for decomposers.
