Expert Answer:

The intensity of accumulation of the toxic substance increases as we move from a lower trophic level to a higher trophic level in a food chain. This phenomenon is called biomagnification. This occurs when an organism absorbs a toxic substance at a rate greater than the rate at which the substance is lost from the food chain.
