The first one is the predator( [predt(r)]: dong vat an thit) chain, in which larger animals feed on smaller ones, such as when a bird eats a fish. The second is the parasite chain, in which smaller animals live off larger ones, such as a tapeworm living in a eats intestines. And the third type is the saprophytic chain in which a microorganism feeds off dead matter. In each type of chain, potential energy is lost at each level. Lets take the example of a green plant. It gets energy from the sun by photosynthesis, but can use only about 2 or 3 percent of the energy that falls on it. The plant is then eaten by a rabbit, but the rabbit can use only about 10 percent of the potential energy of the plant. The rabbit is then eaten by a fox, which can use about 12 - 15 percent of the energy from the rabbit. And finally, the fox is eaten by a mountain lion. As you can see, at each step the percentage of energy obtained increases, but all in all, a great deal of energy is lost at each step. Thats all for today. Read the next chapter in your books. Well go on with more about the food chain next time. 76.What is the major topic of this lecture? A Predators in the animal world. B Divisions of the food chain. C The loss of potential energy in predators. D A parasitic chain. 77.Which of the following is an example of a predator chain? A. A bird eating a fish. B A rabbit eating grass. C A tapeworm living in an animal. D A plant using energy from the sun, 78.How much of the potential energy from the sun can a plant use? A 2 - 3 percent. B 10 percent. C 12 - 15 percent. D More than 15 percent. 79.What happens at each step of the food chain? A. A plant uses energy. B Animals kill other animals. C Potential energy is lost. D A micro-organism feeds off dead matter. 80.What is eaten in a saprophytic chain? A. A green plant. B Dead matter. C A smaller animal. D A rabbit.
