- Net Primary Productivity (NPP) (1)
- Species (1)
- Soil Horizons (1)
- Habitat (1)
- Nitrogen Fixation (2)
- a The natural process by which nitrogen in the universe is converted to ammonia (ex. used by many prokaryotes including bacteria and actinobacteria).
- b Specific layer in the land area that is parallel to the soil surface that possesses physical characteristics which differ from the layer above and beneath (ex. alluvium, sand dunes, and volcanic ash).
- c An ecological or environmental inhabited by a particular species of organism (ex. African elephant habitats spread throughout Africa and Microhabitats)
- d The production of organic compounds from atmospheric or aquatic carbon dioxide, principally through the idea of photosynthesis (ex. reduced carbohydrate: CO2 + H2O + light CH2O + O2).
- 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
- The rigid outtermost shell of a rocky planet (ex. Earth consists of a crust and uppermost mantle within it's lithosphere.
- All the organisms which belong to the same species and live in the same geographical area (ex. human population, plant population, and animal populations).
- Organisms that break down dead or decaying organisms that carry out of the process of decomposition (ex. fungi and worms).
- Graphical representation designed to show the biomass productivity at each trophic level in a given ecosystem (sig. helps discover the amount of energy distributed within each given trophic level).
- An organism that produces complex organic compounds from simple inorganic molecules using energy from light (ex. plants and trees).
5 True/False questions
Percolation (3) → The movement and filtering of fluids through porous materials (ex. coffee percolation, the solvent being water, permeable substances being coffee grounds, and soluble constitutes are the objects that give coffee taste and color).
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).
Food Web (1) → 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).
Community (1) → 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).
Leaching (1) → 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).
