  1. zooplankton
  2. photic zone
  3. phytoplankton
  4. tundra
  5. intertidal zone
  1. a Place where the ocean meets the land and the shore is pounded by waves during high tide and is exposed to sun and drying winds during low tide.
  2. b The biome located in the Arctic surrounding the North Pole and Alpine meadows, characterized by very long, cold, harsh winters and minuscule summers. Ground is covered in permafrost most of the year.
  3. c Small, drifting animals located in the pelagic photic zone.
  4. d Microscopic algae and cyanobacteria that carry out photosynthesis in the photic zone.
  5. e The depth of light penetration, a maximum of 200 meters, in the ocean.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. A biome that is transitional between an aquatic ecosystem and a terrestrial one.
  2. The latitudes and the tropics and the Arctic Circle in the north and the Antarctic Circle in the south. They have seasonal variations in climate and more moderate temperatures than the tropics or polar zones.
  3. The region surrounding the equator between latitudes 23.5 degrees north (the Tropic of Cancer) and 23.5 degrees south (the Tropic of Capricorn), which experiences the greatest annual input and the least seasonal variation in solar radiation.
  4. The significant environmental problem by which semiarid regions are converted to desert.
  5. An area of calm or very light winds caused by moist air at the equator rising due to being heated by the direct rays of the sun.

5 True/False questions

  1. temperate forestsThe latitudes and the tropics and the Arctic Circle in the north and the Antarctic Circle in the south. They have seasonal variations in climate and more moderate temperatures than the tropics or polar zones.

          

  2. estuaryThe biome located in the Arctic surrounding the North Pole and Alpine meadows, characterized by very long, cold, harsh winters and minuscule summers. Ground is covered in permafrost most of the year.

          

  3. westerliesThe driest of all terrestrial biomes, characterized by low and unpredictable rainfall (less than 30 cm per year).

          

  4. chaparralA biome characterized by dense, spiny shrubs with tough evergreen leaves. The climate generally results from cool ocean currents circulating offshore which produce mild, rainy winters and hot, dry summers.

          

  5. aphotic zoneThe depth of light penetration, a maximum of 200 meters, in the ocean.
