1 Ch 10 M/C review questions

2 1  The largest area of old-growth forest in the world is located in:  US  Russia  Costa Rica  Mexico  China

3 2  Cutting the intermediate-aged trees in an uneven-aged forest is referred to as:  Selective cutting  Clear-cutting  Strip cutting  Seed-tree cutting  deforestation

4 3  All of the following would result in an area that was recently clear cut EXCEPT  Water runoff would increase  A loss of soil nutrients  An increase in erosion  An increase in biodiversity  An increase in water pollution

5 4  Fire suppression which allows dead wood, leaves, and other flammable ground litter to accumulate can result in a:  Surface fire  Brush fire  Flash flood  Decreased runoff  Crown fire

6 5  The huge demand for fuelwood for cooking in developing countries is leading to a downward spiral of environmental degradation. All of the following have resulted from the overuse of this resource EXCEPT:  Poverty  Disease  Preservation  Crime  violence

7 6  One effect of our overgrazing of the natural rangelands is  Increased biodiversity  Decreased solar power  Inversion of the human population pyramid  Soil erosion  Increased soil porosity

8 7  A farmer in a developing nation will try to put the maximum amount of crops on his land. This farmer would most likely use which method of tree cutting?  Selective cutting  Clear-cutting  Strip cutting  Seed-tree cutting  Shelterwood cutting

9 8  A protected area that allows the migration of individuals and populations to move from one area to another is known as a(n):  Buffere zone  Fragmentation  Eutrophication  Sequestration  Habitat corridor

10 9  An area that is especially rich in plant species that are found nowhere else and are in great danger of extinction are known as:  Biodiversity hotspots  Wilderness areas  National parks  Protected areas

11 10  Covering a landfill with topsoil and planting with vegetation  Restoration  Rehabilitation  Replacement  Creating artificial ecosystems  Mitigation

12 11  Converting a mild-western farm back to original prairie grassland  Restoration  Rehabilitation  Replacement  Creating artificial ecosystems  Mitigation

13 12  Creating a man-made wetland to help treat sewage  Restoration  Rehabilitation  Replacement  Creating artificial ecosystems  Mitigation

14 13  Which of the following would be an example of restoration of disturbed lands?  Writing a law that makes it illegal to build on the disturbed lands  Building a wall to prevent erosion during severe storms such as hurricanes  Building biological corridors between human habitations  Converting a forest into a national park  Replanting a destroyed area back to its natural statw
