Biology Excursion Question Using data collected on field trip and two named animals, explain the relationship between the distribution and abundance of these two organisms and the abiotic features of the rock platform. There is a close relationship between the abundance and the distribution of organisms living amongst the long reef platform. Abiotic features such as temperature range, salinity, Ph. levels, turbidity, water availability effect the distribution and abundance of aquatic sea creatures living in the area. Some of the organisms such as Tesseropora Roseas (Barnacles) and Knobbly Winks have different adaptations, which allow them to survive in these harsh conditions.
(c) Ecology is an area of study that focuses on interactions in nature. Ecology is a strategy for sustainable living. 2. Which of the following would be the best way for an ecologist to determine the effects of an industrial waste chemical on the survival of a fish species? (1 point) conducting experimental work in a lab conducting library research constructing mathematical models on a computer making observations in natural areas 3.
This function is f(x)=x 1 | 3 | , which is the same as f(x)= . This is the function f(x)=2x. These are the types of functions this lesson will focus on. Essential Questions After completing this lesson, you will be able to answer these questions: * How can graphs be created from verbal expressions? * How can the key features of an exponential function be compared through tables and graphs?
7. How do your findings relate to relevant theories in environmental science? Specifically: a. Do your results indicate that any of the species are keystone species? Do they support the theory of bottom-up or top-down control of population dynamics in ecosystems?

lReading 01 Sentence Simplification Question 01 01 Which of the sentences below best expresses the essential information in the highlighted sentence in the passage? Incorrect choices change the meaning in important ways or leave out essential information. (A) The existence of the phytoplankton that are an integral component of the nourishment system is dependent on the existence of the organisms. (B) The relationship between the organisms and the phytoplankton ensures that there is adequate nutrition for the creatures that inhabit the area. (C) The organisms act as the foundation of the restricted food chain in a manner that is comparable to the role of the phytoplankton.
Why Do Microbiologists Study Termites? In nature, intimate relationships between organisms commonly occur, one of which is a mutually advantageous relationship for both the host and the hosted. This mutualistic symbiosis is best characterized in the role protozoans and fungi play in the digestion of cellulose in a termite’s (family termitidae) gut. Without this help, termites would not be able to break down the lignin-rich woody materials needed for growth and nutrition but with this help the symbionts i.e. protists and fungi, have their food delivered to them, thus conserving energy by not having to go far to feed.
Biodiversity, known as the variety of all life forms on Earth, from the tiniest bugs living in the soil, to the birds in your garden, the plants they feed from, and the biggest sharks in the sea, are indeed the basis of our human existence and our life support system. The ecosystem depends on biodiversity to do a wide variety of processes that are fundamental to humans and life in general, such as regulating climatic processes, breaking down wastes and recycling nutrients, filtering and purifying water, buffering against flooding, maintaining soil fertility, purifying air, and providing natural resources such as wood, textiles, and of course food. The biological diversity we enjoy today is the product of millions of years of evolution, and
