Homework Help: Food Webs

  1. Jan 11, 2006 #1
    I have to create a Food Web but I need a bit of help...

    Dolphin
    Bacteria
    Mullet
    Pelican
    Right Whale
    Shad
    Jack
    Shrimp
    Phytoplankton
    Eagle
    Copepods


    I've placed the following already:

    Bacteria
    Phytoplankton
    Shrimp
    Copepods
    Right Whale
    Dolphin
    Jack
    Shad

    I have an idea of where the remaining three fit but I wanted to check my answers...I'll put what I have down by posting the starting point then working my way out. It'll save time. ^_^

    bacteria > copepods > shad > dolphin
    bacteria > copepods > right whale
    bacteria > copepods > jack > dolphin
    phytoplankton > copepods > shad > dolphin
    phytoplankton > copepods > right whale
    phytoplankton > copepods > jack > dolphin
    phytoplankton > shrimp

    Now, I'll attempt to guess my way through some of the remaining ones so just ignore the dumb guesses/questions.:tongue:

    Do eagles eat shrimp? What about the three fish listed? (Shad, Jack, and Mullets)
    Do Pelicans eat all three of the fish listed? What about Shrimp?:rofl:
    Do Mullets eat copepods like the other two fish?

    Do I have the other chains right? ^_^

    What you've presented looks reasonable to me. @Ygggdrasil
