2 Instructions for using this template. Remember this is Jeopardy, so where I have written Answer this is the prompt the students will see, and where I have Question should be the students response. To enter your questions and answers, click once on the text on the slide, then highlight and just type over whats there to replace it. If you hit Delete or Backspace, it sometimes makes the text box disappear. When clicking on the slide to move to the next appropriate slide, be sure you see the hand, not the arrow. (If you put your cursor over a text box, it will be an arrow and WILL NOT take you to the right location.)

3 Choose a category. You will be given the answer. You must give the correct question. Click to begin.

5 Biomes Ecology & Adaptations Biodiversity Ultimate anything 10 Point 20 Points 30 Points 40 Points 50 Points 10 Point 20 Points 30 Points 40 Points 50 Points 30 Points 40 Points 50 Points Agriculture

6 A biome characterized by evergreen trees.

7 What is the boreal forest or taiga?

8 Our biome, characterized by trees that lose their leaves in the winter.

9 What is the eastern deciduous forest?

10 A biome characterized by extreme temperature differences & (historically) frequent fires

11 What is the grasslands biome?

12 A biome in which almost all of the nutrients are contained in the biomass.

13 What is the tropical rainforest?

14 A biome characterized by permafrost.

15 What is the tundra?

16 Two reasons that cacti have thorns.

17 Used What is: 1. discouraging herbivores and. 2. preventing damage from overheating.

18 Two reasons that plants with evergreen needles dominate the boreal forest.

19 What is: 1.Evergreen needles conserve water and 2.Evergreen needles conserve energy (no need to regrow leaves each spring)?

20 Two reasons birds bother to migrate.

21 What is: 1. Migrating North gives birds more territory for nesting 2. Migrating North offers a more bountiful insect supply?

22 This term includes the interaction of communities with the physical (non-living) environment.

23 What is an ecosystem?

24 Fill in the blanks on the trophic pyramid with missing terms: Earthworms Grass Grasshoppers Snakes Hawks

25 Snakes Grasshoppers Grass

26 This form of agriculture has less of an impact on the environment and thus most people think it can be practiced in one area for a longer period of time.

27 What is sustainable agriculture?

28 Two potential impacts of Conventional hog farms on the environment.

29 What are eutrophication from overflowing manure lagoons and problems associated with growing too much corn (fossil fuel pollution, nutrient pollution, sediment pollution)?

30 Two potential impacts of conventional agriculture on water.

31 What are overuse of water from aquifers (ex. Ogallala) and contamination of water from sediment or chemicals?

32 Two reasons that organic agriculture isnt practiced more widely in our country.

33 What are: it costs more for consumers; our current economic systems favor larger entities; it takes awhile to learn and implement new practices?

34 The names of the three GMO products we discussed in class (know the issues surrounding them for the test).

35 What are: golden rice, Bt corn, and Round-up Ready corn/soybeans?

36 The number one greatest cause of biodiveristy loss.

37 What is habitat loss or alteration?

38 An example of a species whose numbers have suffered from overexploitation (includes the pet trade and overharvesting).

39 What are ginseng and box turtles (local examples); tigers, rhinos, elephants, etc. (global examples)?

40 A plant species that is typically found in a cove hardwoods community.

41 What is Rhododendron (or yellow birch, hemlock, poplar)?

42 The land-based biome with the greatest amount of Biodiversity.

43 What is a tropical rainforest?

44 The 6 primary reasons for biodiversity loss worldwide.

45 What is: Climate Change Habitat alteration Invasive species Population Pollution Overexploitation

46 What are two reasons to advocate for the protection of biodiversity? (imagine you are talking to a person who doesnt care about protecting species for their own sake)

47 What is: 1.Biodiversity could serve as a future source of medicines? 2.Biodiversity could serve as a future source of food? 3.Biodiversity can serve as an economic stimulus through ecotourism?

48 What are 3 steps we can take to protect biodiversity?

49 What are: 1.Pass laws (like the E.S.A.)? 2.Protect land (like the N.P.S.) 3.Take care as a consumer (do not buy local ginseng, for example)

50 The reason that there are more deer on the East Coast than there were 300 years ago.

51 What is habitat fragmentation leading edge species like deer to flourish? (deer thrive on shrubs that grow on the edges of woods)

52 The order, from biggest to smallest, of the following terms: Community, population, biome, species, biosphere, ecosystem.

53 What is: biosphere, biome, ecosystem, community, population, species?

54 You might find a pine-oak community type growing In this general location.

55 What is a South or West-facing slope? (also, in a region where fire is a periodic influence)

56 A community type featuring dogwoods, red maple, beech, poplar, and Carolina chickadees.

57 What is a northern hardwoods community?

58 This biome is located on the ocean floor.

59 What is the benthic zone?

60 This biome can be either rocky or sandy. It is another term for a beach.

61 What is the intertidal zone ?

62 This agricultural revolution used conventional crop breeding techniques to grow new, better varieties of crops that could potentially feed more people.

63 What is The Green Revolution?

64 Biome geography Make your wager

65 The name of the ocean biome that includes tuna fish, king mackerel, and whales. The name of the ocean biome that includes tuna fish, king mackerel, and whales.
