Is the number of trophic levels an ecological energy pyramid limited?
The number is most definitely limited.
The number of trophic levels in an ecological energy pyramid is most definitely limited. As one increases in trophic level, there is less and less energy available. This is why we see first order and second order carnivores, but we rarely see third order carnivores. For more information on energy availability, see the second question below.
