- Primary Consumer (1)
- Leaching (1)
- a A consumer in which they get their energy from the consumption of plants (ex. cows, moose, and rabbits).
- 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).
- c The extraction of certain materials from a carrier into a liquid (ex. agriculture leaching, chemical science leaching, and pedology leaching).
- d A carnivore at the topmost of the food chain that feeds on other carnivores (ex. humans).
- 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
- An index that incorporates the number of species in an area and also their relative abundance (ex. Simpsons Diversity index: D = (n / N)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).
- An organism that produces complex organic compounds from simple inorganic molecules using energy from light (ex. plants and trees).
- An ecological or environmental inhabited by a particular species of organism (ex. African elephant habitats spread throughout Africa and Microhabitats)
- 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
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).
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).
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).
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%).
Community (1) → A group of interacting species sharing a populated environment (ex. human communities, plant communities, and animal communities)
