  2. Photosynthesis (2)
  3. Biomass (1)
  4. Species (1)
  5. Tertiary (higher level) consumers (1)
  1. a A carnivore at the topmost of the food chain that feeds on other carnivores (ex. humans).
  2. b The measure of the void spaces within material, and is a fraction of the volume of voids over the total volume (sig. The porosity of a rock, is an important consideration when attempting to evaluate the potential volume of water or hydrocarbons it may contain).
  3. c A renewable energy source in which a biological material is from living or recently deceased organisms (ex. garbage, wood, waste, landfill gasses, and alcohol fuels).
  4. d The process that converts carbon dioxide into organic compounds using the energy from sunlight (ex. process always begins when energy from light is absorbed by proteins that contain chlorophylls).
  5. e One of the basic units of biological classification and taxonomic rank, one of a group of organisms capable of breeding and producing fertile offspring (ex. generic name and specific name, Boa Constrictor)

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. The movement of phosphorous through the lithosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere (sig. Scientists analyze the amounts of phosphorus amounts throughout the earth and discover its essentiality for plants and animals in the form of ions).
  2. A consumer in which consumes the consumer of the plants or autotrophs (ex. foxes, owls, and snakes).
  3. An organism that produces complex organic compounds from simple inorganic molecules using energy from light (ex. plants and trees).
  4. A consumer in which they get their energy from the consumption of plants (ex. cows, moose, and rabbits).
  5. The existence, abundance, and distribution of species depends on the tolerance level of each species to physical and chemical factors (ex. In aquatic ecosystems, major limiting factors include pH, the amount of dissolved oxygen in the water and the salinity).

5 True/False Questions

  1. Carbon Cycle (1)The Biogeochemical cycle of which carbon is exchanged throughout the biosphere, pedosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and the atmosphere (sig. Helps scientific researches discover where large amounts of carbon are stored i.e. the ocean contains the largest active pool of carbon near the surface of earth).


  2. Biogeochemical Cycle (1)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. Species Diversity (1)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).


  4. Humus (1)A natural body consisting of layers of mineral constitutes of variable thickness, which differ from the parent material in their physical, chemical, and mineralogical characteristics (ex. differs from its parent rock in the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere).


  5. 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).
