Consider this northern site of primary succession following the retreat of a glacier. As we move from left to right, describe some improvements in the abiotic factors that support plant growth. A) change in climate over time B) less competition for water resources due to biodiversity C) improved soil quality: increased humus and water retention D) increased population density resulting in decreased pathogens

Answer: C. improved soil quality: increased humus and water retention.

Explanation:

An ecological succession brings change in the type of living species residing in an ecosystem with respect to changes that occur in the abiotic (non-living factors) with respect to time.

A region affected by a retreating glacier will not be suitable for the growth of living species. The soil may be lacking minerals and will be in the permafrost condition. So for the initiation of succession the improvement in soil an important abiotic factor is required. The improved soil quality will allow the accumulation of organic and inorganic minerals by physical and biological processes. This will help in formation of humus and water retention.

Question 5 options: True False

Answer:

1. water and carbon cycle

2. carbon cycle

3. nitrogen compounds in the air

4. eutrophication

5. True

Explanation:

Deforestation is the outright removal of forest layers and conversion of such land to other uses. Forest layers serve as sinks for carbon and also as filters for water running off to streams and seas. Hence, removal of forests affects both carbon and water cycles.

Paving a large parking lot involves covering the soil surface with asphalt, concrete or any other materials. Soil contains millions of aerobic organisms that assist in decomposition of organic matters. Covering up the soil surface will limit the activities of these organisms and negatively affect organic matter decomposition which happens to be a major step in carbon cycle.

Acid rain occur when acidic oxides present in the atmosphere dissolve in rainwater to produce a weak acid. The acidic oxides include, oxides of sulphur, nitrogen, etc.

Eutrophication is the enrichment of water bodies by nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen. The enrichment causes a bloom of photosynthetic aquatic organisms and microbes. These blooms lead to high oxygen consumption from the water bodies which can eventually lead to the depletion of oxygen.

Excess nitrogen can enter the nitrogen cycle via fertilizer usage by farmers, sewage treatment plants and exhaust of vehicles. Fertilizers are rich in nitrogen (NPK) and those that are not used by crops enters the nitrogen cycle through the soil. Treated sewage also represents a rich source of nitrogen and when released into the environment, then enter the nitrogen cycle through the soil or water. Smokes emanating from vehicles contain oxides of nitrogen and these enters into the nitrogen cycle through the air.

Biogeochemical cycles _______. a. are not essential for life b. move through abiotic and biotic regions c. are the result of natural disasters d. provide the greatest amount of energy for the Earth

The correct answer is B. Move through abiotic and biotic regions

Explanation:

The biogeochemical cycles refer to different natural cycles such as the oxygen cycle, the water cycle or the sulfur cycle that guarantee different substances and elements that are essential for life and Earth move. Indeed substances in biogeochemical cycles travel through abiotic or non-living regions such as the atmosphere or the soil but also involve biotic ones including ecosystem, animals, and plants. According to this, biogeochemical cycles move through abiotic and biotic regions.

Soil creation is an outcome of successions that are carried out. Succession involves a sequence of stages which includes climax stage. It can be primary or secondary too. On the primary succession, colonization of habitats is involved. Reestablishment of a community occurs on the secondary succession. Most of the organisms and other organic components have been ruined.

Which refers to the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite changing external conditions? a. differentiation b. self-renewal c. homeostasis d. specialization

Answer: c. homeostasis

Explanation:

Homeostasis is the state of maintenance of internal environment by the body so as to maintain a dynamic state of equilibrium with the changes that occurring in the external environment. Homeostasis can be maintained by many variable such as by maintaining the body temperature, pH, blood sugar level, concentration of the ions such as sodium, potassium and calcium. The homeostasis facilitates the survival of the organism in adverse environmental conditions.

Landfills are waste disposal sites. They are often man-made depressions in the ground covered with a lining designed to prevent any leakage of waste materials. However, landfills can leak through the base resulting in negative impacts on the surrounding environments. What negative impact to the environment is caused by the production of methane gas in landfills?

The landfill gases have a negative effect on climate change. The prime constituents are methane and carbon dioxide, both of these are greenhouse gases. In terms of global warming, methane is over twenty-five times more harmful to the atmosphere in comparison to carbon dioxide.  

The emission of methane gas from the landfills can result in hygiene, environmental, and security issues in the area surrounding the landfills. In supplementation to the threat of explosion and fire, the migration of gas in the subsurface can lead to exposure of methane gas with the groundwater, thus, contaminating the source of water.

What did Mendel's cross pollination of pea plants prove A crossing a tall plant with a tall plant will always results in a tall plant B all the cells in an organism carry the same hereditary factors C inheritance of certain factors is dependent upon the genetic code D certain factors are dominant and other factors are recessive

Answer: The correct answer is- D certain factors are dominant and other factors are recessive.

Mendel was interested in knowing the offspring that is produced from the cross pollination (that is from two different plants) as he wanted to study different traits of pea plant.

For doing so, he first removed the anthers of one plant (to prevent self pollination) and then transferred the pollens of one plant into the stigma of another plant.

When he allowed the cross pollination of purebred pea plant with other plant, he observed that some factors are dominant (such as tall height of pea plant, which masks the expression of recessive factors) and other are recessive (such as dwarf height of pea plant).

Thus, option D) is the right answer.

Result of succession that involves relative stability and species diversity

Soil creation is a result of carrying out successions. Succession is the process in which land that is inhabitable by organisms is reclaimed and made fertile. This is done using pioneer species, which do not require soil to grow. After a while, these species are removed and a secondary succession is carried out. After this process, soil is created and the land becomes fertile.

When dry environmental conditions exist, guard cells close the openings in leaves to reduce the loss of water from the plant. This process is an example of a feedback mechanism that plants use in order to A. maintain homeostasis. B. expend their resources. C. absorb more solar energy. D. produce more chlorophyll.

Ans.

Homeostasis is defined as a process that keeps the organism's internal environment as constant as possible. Water works as a thermoregulator, solvent, and play role in almost all metabolic reactions.

Guard cells maintain homeostasis in plants as these cells prevent water loss from plants during hot and dry conditions by closing their opening. On the other hand, opening of guard cells during dry conditions will cause loss of water by transpiration and plant will not maintain the homeostasis.  

Thus, the correct answer is option A). 'maintain homeostasis.'
