- Phosphorus Cycle (1)
- Aerobic Respiration (2)
- Scavenger (1)
- Species (1)
- Biosphere (1)
- a 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)
- b 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).
- c 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).
- d 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).
- e 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).
5 Multiple choice questions
- The efficiency with which energy is transfered from one trophic level to another (ex. 20 units of energy are produced are trophic level 1; one half of that is lost to non-predatory death, while the other half is ingested by trophic level 2; one half of the amount ingested is expelled through defecation while the other half is ingested by trophic level 3).
- An organism and the position it occupies on the food chain (ex. primary producers level 1 and predators at level 3).
- A measure of the ability of a porous material to transmit fluids (sig. Determines the flow characteristics of hydrocarbons in oil and gas reservoirs).
- A consumer in which they get their energy from the consumption of plants (ex. cows, moose, and rabbits).
- The rigid outtermost shell of a rocky planet (ex. Earth consists of a crust and uppermost mantle within it's lithosphere.
5 True/False questions
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).
Species Diversity (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)
Aquatic Life Zone (1) → An organism and the position it occupies on the food chain (ex. primary producers level 1 and predators at level 3).
Anaerobic Respiration (2) → 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).
Producer (1) → An organism that produces complex organic compounds from simple inorganic molecules using energy from light (ex. plants and trees).
