4 Which of the following is an organic compound? Organic/Inorganic $100 1.Salt – NaCl 2.Water – H 2 O 3.Glucose – C 6 H 12 O 6 4.Ammonia – NH 3

5 Where do living organisms obtain elements needed to make organic compounds? Organic/Inorganic $200 1.The atmosphere (air) 2.Water from the soil 3.Consuming other organisms 4.All of the above

6 Plants are an organic because: Organic/Inorganic $300 1.They contain two or more elements that don’t include carbon 2.They contain only three different elements 3.They have 24 atoms 4.They contain carbon and other elements such as hydrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, nitrogen or sulfur

7 Carbon dioxide for energy is used by: Organic/Inorganic $400 1.Plants during photosynthesis 2.Animals during respiration 3.Plants, animals, and fungi during respiration 4.Plants and fungi during respiration

8 Carbon is recycled back into the atmosphere by all of the following methods except Organic/Inorganic $500 1.Absorption by oceans 2.Plant and animal decay 3.Animals breathing 4.Industrial activity; burning fossil fuels

9 Glucose helps maintain life on our planet by storing what? Matter in Ecosystems $100 1.Chemical energy 2.Radiant energy 3.Carbon dioxide 4.minerals

10 The elements that make up the compounds of photosynthesis are Matter in Ecosystems $200 1.Made new every time 2.Elements do not make up compounds of photosynthesis 3.Lost once they are used 4.Recycled through the carbon cycle

11 A substance that cannot be broken down into any other substance is called what? Matter in Ecosystems $300 1. a mixture 2.A compound 3.An element 4.matter

12 How do humans contribute to the carbon cycle? Matter in ecosystems $400 1.By building homes 2.By over-populating the earth 3.By burning fossil fuels 4.By replenishing forests

13 The rainforest has an extremely high number of plants and animal species because Matter in Ecosystems $500 1.It receives very little rainfall 2.It receives lots of rainfall 3.It is cold and dry all year 4.It receives lots of energy

14 Which of the following would be an example of an organism you would find at the bottom of an energy pyramid? Living Systems $100 1.Human 2.Squirrel 3.Oak Tree 4.Beetle

15 How do decomposers obtain energy in an ecosystem? Living Systems $200 1.Through photosynthesis 2.From breaking down dead organisms 3.From the atmosphere 4.Through symbiosis

16 Which statement best describes one of the levels of this pyramid? Living Systems $300 1.The organisms in level B obtain food directly from level A 2.Level D contains the greatest number of heterotrophs in the pyramid 3.Level C contains the largest group of consumers in the pyramid 4.Level A contains the largest producers in the pyramid

17 As energy flows through a food web, what statement best characterizes the transformation of matter within the cycle? Living Systems $400 1.Matter is gained and lost 2.Matter is lost 3.No matter is lost or gained 4.None of the above

18 How would spraying pesticides to remove all the mosquitoes in a given area affect the food chain? Living Systems $500 1.Mosquitoes are important links in the food chain, and removing them would affect all the animals that are higher up 2.Mosquitoes are not an important species, and would not affect the food chain 3.All the frogs and birds that depend on mosquitoes would completely disappear and the ecosystem would be destroyed

19 Organic waste; matter from plants and animals that can be used as a source of energy is Biomass $200 1.Nitrogen 2.Biomass 3.Hydrogen 4.Mushrooms

20 Biomass is commonly plant matter grown to generate ___ or produce heat. Biomass $100 1.Electromagnetism 2.Electricity 3.Electric charge 4.Electric current

21 The process in which organic wastes, such as food and yard wastes, decompose naturally is called Biomass $300 1.Composting 2.Carbonation 3.De-nitrification 4.Nitrogen fixation

22 In a healthy forest, dead trees and limbs fall to the ground and decompose. Why is decomposition is important to a forest ecosystem? Biomass $400 1.Nutrients are released when wood is broken down by decomposers 2.Worms produce oxygen that is used by other organisms 3.Dead trees provide nest sites for many different birds 4.Water is stored in dead tree limbs for animals to drink

23 The pyramid illustrates some feeding relationships in alpine meadows of Yellowstone National Park. Which statement is best supported by the information shown in the pyramid? Biomass $500 1.Chipmunks and insects can occupy the same niche 2.Biomass decreases as energy is transferred from one level to another 3.Insects are classified as omnivores in alpine meadow communities 4.As the number of bears in this community increases, the number of chipmunks will increase

24 Why is Carbon is essential to life ? Cycles $100 1.It’s the most common element 2.The compounds of life are built with it 3.Living organisms breathe it 4.So it can bind with oxygen in the water

25 What do nitrogen fixing bacteria do? Cycles $200 1.Help with the decay process 2.Release nitrogen into the air 3.Put nitrogen from the air into the soil 4.Help plants carry out photosynthesis

26 Nitrogen is essential to life because _______ Cycles $300 1.It helps make proteins and amino acids 2.It is the most important element for life 3.It makes up carbohydrates 4.Help plants carry out photosynthesis

27 Carbon is in what form in the atmosphere? Cycles $400 1.solid 2.plasma 3.liquid 4.gas

28 What place on earth is known as a carbon “sink”? Cycles $500 1.The atmosphere 2.The mountains 3.The ocean 4.The deserts

29 Which of the following is not an abiotic factor in an ecosystem? Miscellaneous $100 1.The yearly rainfall 2.The number of plants 3.The average temperature 4.The amount of oxygen in the water

30 A drought condition affects an area. Lack of rain is ___ of that area’s organisms. Miscellaneous $200 1.An adaptation 2.The community 3.A limiting factor 4.The carrying capacity

31 Abiotic factors in an ecosystem such as sunlight, water, and oxygen __ Miscellaneous $300 1.Are necessary to support life 2.Are not necessary to support life 3.Are found in the same amount everywhere on Earth 4.Are non-renewable resources

32 A population of wolves lives in a region with plenty of food, water, and living space. Which of these is true? Miscellaneous $400 1.The wolf population will become carnivores 2.The wolf population faces increased competition 3.The wolf population lives in a poor habitat 4.The wolf population has excellent potential for survival

33 When is an ecosystem best able to support a variety of organisms? Miscellaneous $500 1.When organisms share food and habitats equally 2.When competition for food is controlled by humans 3.When the physical space needs of an organism is met 4.When organisms use the parts of an ecosystem differently
