In an island ecosystem, a species of beetle eats a shrubby plant, a songbird eats the beetle and the hawk eats the songbird. Which of the following would most likely have the smallest population?
(a.) Shrubby Plant
(b.) Beetle *I chose this*
(c.) Songbird
(d.) Hawk

    I got this question wrong, for anyone who needs it, the answer is D, hawk.

  • Science -

    ah, I disagree.
    The predator highest on the list usually is big in size( whale :) but is small in population numbers. A hawk eats a lot of songbirds.

    Ah well, I saw the question too late.
