Question

What is the difference between the concepts of food chain and food web?


Solution

The concept of a food chain is a theoretical model to study the energy flow in ecosystems. In reality, in an ecosystem, organisms are part of several interconnected food chains, forming a food web. Therefore, a food chain is a theoretical linear sequence whereas the food web is a more realistic representation of the nature in which food chains interconnect to form a web.
