The Flow of Energy Through Ecosystems. Then, complete Appendix C and respond to the following: Identify the fruit or vegetable you selected and relate the second law of thermodynamics to the changes in energy observed in Appendix C. How did the amount of energy gained compare to the amount of energy lost as heat at the second through fourth trophic levels? Considering the amount of energy required to produce animal-based foods and goods, should humans change their habits so they consume products closer to the bottom of the food chain because it is more efficient?

My answer
The fruit that I chose was the cherry. The total calorie per serving is 77. While observing these changes in energy in appendix C, I noticed the first producer and second consumer total of energy levels remain the same. However, it starts decreasing from the second consumer through the third consumer because thermodynamic is the relationship between heat and other forms of energy. In essence, the second law of thermodynamic elaborates the connection between entropy and the spontaneity of natural processes.
Human should consider to change their habits because animal-based foods and goods are the most damaging groups and immediate remedies is recommended in order to avoid major threats to the environment.

    Human should consider to change their habits because animal-based foods and goods are the most damaging groups and immediate remedies is recommended in order to avoid major threats to the environment.

    Read the above sentence aloud. You should hear errors in subject-verb agreement. You also need a comma between the two independent clauses.

    In the first paragraph, be sure to check on each use of the word "it" and make sure it's clear what "it" is!

    Other teachers may have further comments for you regarding the content of your writing.

    Second para
    Try to explain why you are stating "that animal-based foods and goods are the most damaging groups", and damaging in what way and to what? The latter will help with the second half of the sentence where you could give examples of remedies.

    'threats to the environment' tends to be overworked as a phrase so as this is science writing try to be more specific. Do you mean sea level rise, loss of rainforests, rise in global mean surface temperature (GMST), increase in ozone hole or perhaps something related to the environment nearer to home might be examples.

    You may of course be constrained by a word limit.
