Grade 12 Food Chains and Webs
Heterotrophs are known as
  1. antagonists.
  2. inhibitors.
  3. consumers.
  4. nucleic acids.
Grade 12 Biogeochemical Cycles
We know that temperature controls the rate of respiration and changes the amount of organic matter stored in soil. Based on your knowledge of respiration, would you expect to find more carbon stored in soil in a cool or warm climate? Why?
  1. cool, because there is less sunlight available, which reduces the rate of photosynthesis
  2. cool, because microbes in the soil are less active as evidenced through lower rates of respiration
  3. warm, because microbes in the soil have higher rates of respiration, which releases more carbon into the soil
  4. warm, because sunlight is readily available, which means plants increase their rate of photosynthesis, leading to more carbon produced
Grade 12 Communities, Populations, and Ecosystems
Cell populations go through a type of exponential growth called
  1. quadrupling.
  2. tripling.
  3. doubling.
  4. telekinesis.
