      Individual and population net efficiencies of trophic levels of tropical freshwater pond community increased with increasing trophic levels. The individual and population net efficiencies of this study are higher compared to temperate forms. The assimilation and ecological efficiencies are calculated for different trophic levels and presented. A new term foodweb efficiency is coined, defined and calculated for the first time and presented. The significance of foodweb efficiencies is also discussed.
