A) why we need to be concerned with damage to rainforests and coral reefs

Question : A) why we need to be concerned with damage to rainforests and coral reefs : 2141750

MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question.

Use the accompanying figure to answer the following questions.

1) This graph helps to explain ________.

A) why we need to be concerned with damage to rainforests and coral reefs

B) the importance of deserts

C) why the open ocean is so productive

D) why tundra has such high net primary productivity of biomass

E) why cultivated lands are a logical choice to replace rainforests

2) Recall that areas with high net primary productivity not only produce high levels of biomass rapidly, they also take up large amounts of CO2 and give off large amounts of oxygen. What is the likely result of the increasing amounts of fertilizers in the major rivers emptying into oceans?

A) Fisheries will improve as the extra nutrients feed shellfish and fish.

B) Eutrophication, followed by hypoxia, is a likely result, ultimately leading to less CO2 uptake and less oxygen released.

C) Eutrophication, followed by hypoxia, is a likely result, ultimately leading to more CO2 uptake and more oxygen released.

D) Productivity in these areas will increase permanently, leading to more CO2 uptake and more oxygen released.

E) Eutrophication, followed by hypoxia, is a likely result, ultimately leading to less CO2 uptake and more oxygen released.

3) Overall, it appears that biomes with more available fresh water ________.

A) tend to have about the same productivity as those without much fresh water

B) don't differentiate between fresh water as rainfall and fresh water as ice in glaciers

C) tend to have more productivity than those without much fresh water

D) No real conclusions can be drawn.

E) tend to have less productivity than those without much fresh water

6) The process by which water moves from Earth's surface (such as in lakes or rivers) to the atmosphere

7) Release of water vapor by plants through their leaves

8) Upper limit of groundwater in soil or rocks

9) Water returns from the clouds to Earth's surface as this

MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question.

10) ________ is any network of relationships among a group of components, which interact with and influence one another through the exchange of energy, matter, or information.
