5 Matching questions

  1. desertification
  2. trade winds
  3. prevailing winds
  4. permafrost
  5. benthic realm
  1. a The significant environmental problem by which semiarid regions are converted to desert.
  2. b Continuously frozen subsoil.
  3. c The seafloor.
  4. d Dry air that descends and spreads back toward the equator; these cooling winds dominate the equator.
  5. e Major global air movements, resulting from the rising and falling of air masses and Earth's rotation.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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.
  2. The zone below the photic zone in the ocean, comprising of the twilight zone (200 to 1,000 m) and the lightless zone that is below 1,000 meters.
  3. Microscopic algae and cyanobacteria that carry out photosynthesis in the photic zone.
  4. A 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. Small, drifting animals located in the pelagic photic zone.

5 True/False questions

  1. photic zoneThe zone below the photic zone in the ocean, comprising of the twilight zone (200 to 1,000 m) and the lightless zone that is below 1,000 meters.

          

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

          

  3. tropical forest(Aka rainforest) These biomes occur in equatorial areas where the temperature is warm and the days are 11-12 hours long year-round. Rainfall is variable (200-400 cm per year) and the amount of organism diversity is extremely high.

          

  4. temperate forests(Aka deciduous forests/broadleaf forests) Biomes in midlatitude regions where the moisture is sufficient enough to support the growth of large trees. Temperatures range from very cold in the winter to hot in the summer, with average rainfall around 75 to 150 cm.
