6 Version 2.0 Copyright © AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Students investigated a food chain in a garden. The students found 650 aphids feeding on one bean plant. Five ladybirds were feeding on the aphids. B1.5 Energy and biomass in food chains June 2012 BL1HP

7 Version 2.0 Copyright © AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. (a) (i) Draw a pyramid of biomass for this food chain. Label the pyramid. (2 marks) (a) (ii) The biomass in the five ladybirds is less than the biomass in the bean plant. Give two reasons why (2 marks) (b) The carbon in dead bean plants is returned to the atmosphere via the carbon cycle. Describe this part of the carbon cycle (4 marks) B1.5 Energy and biomass in food chains June 2012 BL1HP

10 Version 2.0 Copyright © AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. The diagram shows the annual flow of energy through a habitat. The figures are in kJ m -2 8 (a) (i) Calculate the percentage of the energy in sunlight that was transferred into energy in the green plants. Show clearly how you work out your answer % (2 marks) B1.5 Energy and biomass in food chains June 2012 BL1HP

11 Version 2.0 Copyright © AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. (a) (ii) Suggest reasons why the percentage energy transfer you calculated in part (a)(i) was so low (2 marks) (b) Compare the amount of energy transferred to the insect- eating birds with the amount transferred to the predatory birds. Suggest explanations for the difference in the amount of energy transferred to the two types of bird (3 marks) B1.5 Energy and biomass in food chains June 2012 BL1HP
