The food-chain model implies that all organisms eat from only one trophic level; but many, including humans, eat from more than one. Therefore, the interactions between organisms are better described as a food web. Food webs can be simple, with only a few species inter-­ acting, or they can be as complicated as a tropical rain forest, where thousands of species are ­involved. A change in the population size of one species in a food web affects other species in the web. For example, if a species at the third trophic level decreases in population or dies out, other species at that trophic level will have more predators after them, but they will 33 34 biosphere The interconnections of organisms in a food web are complicated, with some organisms eating from or being eaten by organisms at different tropic ­levels.
