Question 2 (22 points) Baby Jill is stuck on an uninhabited island. The food web quickly comes to look like this: In this web, NPP (plants)=200 kg/day I M (Mice ingestion) = 20kg/day Mice AE (assimilation efficiency) = 20% Mice PE (production efficiency) =10% Ferret EE (exploitation efficiency) = 50% Ferret AE = 80% Ferret PE = 10% Baby Jill EE = 40% Baby Jill AE = 80% Baby Jill PE =10% Detritus Ferrets Baby Jill Mice Plants
