Biology B3 4.8 Making food production efficient.

HideShow resource information
Wat do short food chains make?
Food production more efficient, because less energy will be wasted. It is therefore more efficient for us to eat plants than it is to eat animals.
1 of 5
Why should food production be controlled?
To reduce energy wastage.
2 of 5
How can we produce meat more efficiently?
Preventing the animal from moving so it does not waste energy on movement and keeping the animal in warm sheds so it doesn't use as much energy from food to maintain body temperature.
3 of 5
What is the issue with preventing animals from moving to conserve energy?
It is seen as cruelty by many people and is controversial.

If animals are prevented from moving all day in a warm place, what happens to more of the energy they release in respiration?
It will be converted into new growth.
