- Range of Tolerance (1)
- Community (1)
- Humus (1)
- Phosphorus Cycle (1)
- Genetic Diversity (1)
- a The range of conditions in which an organism can survive and thrive (sig. can mathematically predict the amount of a population with given standards in an ecosystem).
- 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 A group of interacting species sharing a populated environment (ex. human communities, plant communities, and animal communities)
- 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 Any organic matter which has reached a point of stability where it will not break down any further and remain as it is for centuries (ex. mature compost and natural compost used to amend soil).
5 Multiple choice questions
- Zones under the water where aquatic life is present which can be characterized by aquatic ecosystems (ex. marine ecosystem and freshwater ecosystem).
- The natural process by which nitrogen in the universe is converted to ammonia (ex. used by many prokaryotes including bacteria and actinobacteria).
- 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).
- One of the constitutes of many proteins, vitamins, and hormones, and it recycles throughout the earth also in a Biogeochemical cycle (ex. mineralization of organic sulfur to the inorganic form, hydrogen sulfide: (H2S))
- 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).
5 True/False questions
Biome (1) → Relating to, produced by, or caused by living organisms (ex. wood, linoleum, straw, humus and crude oil).
Trophic Levels (1) → 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)
Biogeochemical Cycle (1) → The continuous movement of water on, above, or below the surface of earth (sig. Water cycle involves the exchange of heat energy, which can also lead to temperature changes).
Terrestrial (1) → An animal that lives predominantly or entirely on land which evolved from marine animals (ex. cats, dogs, giraffes).
Ecotone (1) → A biological environment consisting of all the organisms living in a particular area as well as non-living components interact with the organisms as well (ex. terrestrial ecosystem, aquatic ecosystem, and artificial ecosystem).
