Ecology Review


Ecology review

Which of the following is NOT a biotic factor in a prairie dog ecosystem?

A. Grass and other plants that the prairie dog eats

B. Hawks, ferrets and other animals that hunt the prairie dog

C. The soil that provides the prairie dog with a home

D. Worms, fungi and bacteria that live in the soil


Ecology review

What is the correct order of the levels of organization of living things?

A. organism – population – community -- ecosystem

B. ecosystem – population – community -- habitat

C. organism – population – biotic factor - ecosystem

D. organism – succession – community -- ecosystem


Ecology review

A prairie dog, a hawk and a badger are all members of the same

A. niche

B. community

C. species

D. population


Ecology review

Which of the following is NOT an example of limiting factors for populations?

A. time

B. weather

C. space

D. food


Ecology review

Wolves are predators of moose on Isle Royale. If the moose population rises, what do you predict will happen to the wolf population?

A. The wolf population will increase until the moose population begins to decline due to too many predators

B. The wolf population will decrease because they will have to compete with a larger moose population

C. The wolf population will stay the same because they are in a mutualistic relationship with the moose

D. The wolf will go extinct due to overhunting


Ecology review

Although three different bird species all live in the same tree in an area, competition between the birds rarely occurs. The most likely explanation for this lack of competition is that these birds

A. occupy different niches

B. have a limited supply of food

C. eat the same food

D. live in the same part of the tree


Ecology review

The amount of energy transferred from one level to the next in a food web is

A. 5%

B. 10%

C. 50%

D. 90%


Ecology review

The process of evaporation, condensation and precipitation make up the

A. food web

B. carbon and oxygen cycles

C. water cycle

D. nitrogen cycle


Ecology review

“Free” nitrogen is changed into a usable form of nitrogen in the process called

A. primary succession

B. nitrogen fixation

C. condensation

D. legumes


Ecology review

The type of biome that exists in an area is determined by its

A. people

B. climate conditions

C. food webs

D. invasive species

Ecology review

Interactions

Predation competition mutualism commensalism parasitism

A lion hunts, attacks, kills and eats a zebra

predation


Ecology review

Interactions

Predation competition mutualism commensalism parasitism

The seeds of purple loosestrife, an invasive species, migrate to an island and take the space of native plants

competition


Ecology review

Interactions

Predation competition mutualism commensalism parasitism

Wrasses, a reef fish, clean the mouth and gills of the moray eel to gain its meal

mutualism


Ecology review

Interactions

Predation competition mutualism commensalism parasitism

Barnacles live on a whale to have a place to live, but they do not take anything from the whale and the whale is not harmed

commensalism


Ecology review

Interactions

Predation competition mutualism commensalism parasitism

In the rainforest, the strangle fig tree grows around another tree as it absorbs the tree’s nutrients and eventually kills the tree

parasitism


Ecology review

A rocky island appears as ocean waters recede. What type of species would probably appear first on the bare rocks?

Pioneer species, like mosses and lichens, would be the first to appear


Ecology review

A rocky island appears as ocean waters recede. What type of succession does this demonstrate? Why?

Primary succession is demonstrated because the area is starting with bare rock


Ecology review

An old warehouse was torn down. Small weeds and grasses grew on the abandoned land. Over the few years, bushes and tree seedlings began to grow. What will eventually happen to this land over a long period of time?

A forest will eventually grow.


Ecology review

An old warehouse was torn down. Small weeds and grasses grew on the abandoned land. Over the few years, bushes and tree seedlings began to grow. What type of succession does this demonstrate? Why?

Secondary succession is demonstrated because soil is present at the beginning.


Ecology review

A food web is overlapping food chains in an ecosystem

Define a food web


Ecology review

Describe a food chain in this food web.


Ecology review

Producers can make their own food through photosynthesis

Why do all food chains start with a producer?


Ecology review

Mushrooms are decomposers.

What is the role of mushrooms in this web?


Ecology review

The populations of squirrel, shrew, snake and bird would increase.

What would happen if all the hawks died?
