5 Matching questions

  1. Tertiary (higher level) consumers (1)
  2. Genetic Diversity (1)
  3. Hydrosphere (1)
  4. Primary Consumer (1)
  5. Leaching (1)
  1. a A consumer in which they get their energy from the consumption of plants (ex. cows, moose, and rabbits).
  2. b The total number of genetic characteristics in the genetic makeup of a species (sig. Plays a large role in survival and adaptability of species due to the change of the species environment, slight gene variations are necessary to change an organisms anatomy to survive).
  3. c The extraction of certain materials from a carrier into a liquid (ex. agriculture leaching, chemical science leaching, and pedology leaching).
  4. d A carnivore at the topmost of the food chain that feeds on other carnivores (ex. humans).
  5. e The combined mass of water found on, under, and above the planet Earth (ex. the total mass of the Earth's hydrosphere is about 1.4 x 10^18 tons).

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. An index that incorporates the number of species in an area and also their relative abundance (ex. Simpsons Diversity index: D = (n / N)2)
  2. A pathway by which a chemical element or molecules travels throughout biotic and abiotic components on earth (ex. carbon cycle, nitrogen cycle, and water cycle).
  3. An organism that produces complex organic compounds from simple inorganic molecules using energy from light (ex. plants and trees).
  4. An ecological or environmental inhabited by a particular species of organism (ex. African elephant habitats spread throughout Africa and Microhabitats)
  5. A way for an organism to produce usable energy in the form of ATP without the presence of Oxygen (ex. glucose + 3NO3- + 3H2O 6HCO3- + 3NH4+, ΔG0' = -1796 kJ) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anaerobic_respiration#Examples_of_anaerobic_respiration).

5 True/False questions

  1. Consumer (1)A carnivorous feeding behavior in which a predator consumes a corpse that was not killed to be eaten by the predator (ex. vultures, blowflies, and raccoons).

          

  2. Biotic Potential (2)A soil property used to describe the relative proportion of different grain sizes of mineral particles in the soil (ex. clay, silt, sand, and loam).

          

  3. Aquatic Life Zone (1)Zones under the water where aquatic life is present which can be characterized by aquatic ecosystems (ex. marine ecosystem and freshwater ecosystem).

          

  4. Nitrogen Cycle (1)The process by which nitrogen is converted between ammonia acids (sig. Scientists use the nitrogen cycle to determine the total amount of Nitrogen on Earth, which amounts to about 79%).

          

  5. Community (1)A group of interacting species sharing a populated environment (ex. human communities, plant communities, and animal communities)
