    Question :

    Explain the phenomenon of Biological Magnification. How does it affect organisms belonging to different trophic levels particularly the tertiary consumers ?

    Answer :

    Biological magnification refers to the process of increase in the concentration of a toxic chemical with increasing trophic level in a food chain. Harmful or poisonous substance such as DDT sprinkled to kill pests on plants enter the food chain. The plants absorb these harmful chemicals from soil along with water and minerals. They enter the food chain at producer level and then transfers to the next trophic level. The tertiary consumers get more higher levels of these chemicals.

    Biological Magnification: The process of increase in the concentration of toxic entities or chemicals with an increase in trophic level in a food chain is known as biological magnification.

    When harmful or toxic substances like DDT or another pesticide sprinkled over the plants kill pests on the plants and enter the food chain.

    These plants absorb harmful chemicals from the soil along with water and minerals. Thus, they enter the food chain at the producer or initial level and transfer to the next trophic level. Tertiary consumers get a higher concentration of toxic chemicals accumulation.
