Clues

  • able to transform one type of energy into another (11)
  • consist of dead and decaying remains of plants and animals as well as animal wastes such as manure and bone meal (7, 10)
  • Hierachy of feeding relationships which determines the pathways for energy flow and nutrient cycle. (7, 5)
  • organism whose ecological function involves the recycling of nutrients by feeding on dead or decaying organisms. (11)
  • percentage of energy transferred from one trophic level to the next (10, 10)
  • poisonous chemicals that kill pests (9)
  • rate at which an ecosystem accumulates energy or biomass, excluding the energy it uses for respiration (3, 7, 7)
  • total energy or nutrients assimilated by an organism, a population or an entire community (5, 7, 7)
  • using organisms that are either predators or parasites of the pest organism (10, 7)
  • Word to describe ultimate fate of energy flow (10)
