have a strong impact on the survival of most organisms in Antarctica


Question 2 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points)

waters in the eastern Pacific steadily get cooler

waters in the eastern Pacific show no change in temperature

Waters in the eastern Pacific fluctuate daily in temperature


Question 4 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points)

plate tectonics

plate drift

continental drift

continental movement


Question 5 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points)

Question 6 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points)

Estuaries are highly productive bodies of water. Which of the following best explains the reason for this high productivity?

constant changes in salinity

act as a buffer for flooding

provide a habitat for many organisms

act as a filter for nutrients


Question 7 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points)

While conducting random water sampling tests from a nearby estuary you measure higher than normal ammonia levels. You also measure an increase in nitrogen-fixing bacteria and blue green algae in the water. Which of the following best explains why this is a good thing?

will lead to an increase in marine organisms

bacteria and blue-green algae convert ammonia into usable nitrogen

will provide evidence that the water is unhealthy

ammonia increases the productivity of an ecosystem


Question 8 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points)

Why are most of the world's coral reefs found between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn?

warm temperatures

high nutrient levels from runoff

fluctuating salinity levels

little wave action

land ice

sea ice

continental ice

glacial ice


Question 10 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points)

Question 11 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points)

Coral building organisms obtain some of their nutrients by filter feeding phytoplankton and nutrients from the water. Most of their nutrients come from the ____________________ which lives in the coral.






Question 12 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points)

Birds that can fly usually have hollow, lightweight bones. Penguins, a species of flightless bird, have heavy and dense bones. Why is this an advantage?

they are less likely to be injured on the ice
