- Ecotone (1)
- Soil Texture (2)
- Scavenger (1)
- Phosphorus Cycle (1)
- Producer (1)
- a 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).
- b 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).
- c A transition area between two adjacent but different plant communities (ex. reed beds tend to accumulate organic matter which is then colonized by trees, forcing the reeds further into the lake).
- d An organism that produces complex organic compounds from simple inorganic molecules using energy from light (ex. plants and trees).
- e 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).
5 Multiple choice questions
- All the organisms which belong to the same species and live in the same geographical area (ex. human population, plant population, and animal populations).
- The release of energy from glucose or another organic substrate in the presence of Oxygen (ex. takes place in most living things: to get rid of Carbon Dioxide and excess water this is excretion and maximum energy is released from glucose).
- The global sum of all the ecosystems together, often referred to as the "zone of life of earth" (sig. Thought to evolved from through a process of biogenesis or biopoesis over 3.5 billion ago).
- Representations of predator-prey relationships between species within an ecosystem or habitat (ex. A snakes prey might be a mouse, while his predator may be a badger that is represented through a web of organisms).
- Zones under the water where aquatic life is present which can be characterized by aquatic ecosystems (ex. marine ecosystem and freshwater ecosystem).
5 True/False questions
Primary Consumer (1) → A consumer in which they get their energy from the consumption of plants (ex. cows, moose, and rabbits).
Soil (1) → Climatically and geographically defined as similar climatic conditions on earth and often referred to as "ecosystems" (ex. Tundra, tropical rain forest, and Taiga).
Photosynthesis (2) → 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).
Net Primary Productivity (NPP) (1) → The total amount of productivity in a region or a system (ex. total amount of Co2 that is fixed by a plant within photosynthesis).
Tertiary (higher level) consumers (1) → A consumer in which they get their energy from the consumption of plants (ex. cows, moose, and rabbits).
