Explanation:

Trophic structure describes the system or organization of organisms into different trophic levels based on the amount of energy the organism consumes. Organisms can be categorized into different trophic levels within the trophic structure.

Essentially, trophic structure shows us the the feeding relationships between different organisms, both producers and consumers, within a set area and time.

A trophic pyramid, a food web, and a food chain could all be used to describe trophic structure, although there are important differences between the three.
