🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Ardell's class at UCM.

Solution: How does inefficient transfer of energy among trophic levels result in the typically high endangerment status of many top-level predators? a. Top-level predators are destined to have small populations that are sparsely distributed. b. Predators have relatively large population sizes. c. Predators are more disease-prone than animals at lower trophic levels. d. Top-level predators are more likely to be stricken with parasites.
