  • Energy Loss due to movement.
    • Part of the biomass eaten by an animal is used for respiration in the cells.
      • This supplies all the energy needs for the living processes taking place within the body including movement.
    • Movement uses a lot of energy. The muscles use energy to contract and also get hot.
      • Therefore the more the animal moves about, the more energy (and biomass) it uses from its food.
