A Quiz Over Ecosystems And Biomes - Quiz

This a quiz over ecosystems and biomes.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The African grasslands has a warm climate with light rainfall. There are few trees, but enough water to support wild grasses. What kind of animals would be best suited to this type of environment?

    • A.

      Frogs

    • B.

      Camels

    • C.

      Antelopes

    • D.

      Polar bears

    Correct Answer
    C. Antelopes
    Explanation
    Antelopes would be best suited to the African grasslands because they are adapted to the warm climate and light rainfall. They are herbivores that feed on wild grasses, which are abundant in this environment. Antelopes have long legs and are fast runners, allowing them to escape predators in the open grasslands. Additionally, their digestive system is designed to efficiently extract nutrients from grass. Therefore, antelopes are well-suited to thrive in the African grasslands.

    What resource would organisms in a rainforest most likely compete for?

    • A.

      Oxygen

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Food

    • D.

      Sunlight

    Correct Answer
    D. Sunlight
    Explanation
    In a rainforest, sunlight is a limited resource due to the dense canopy of trees that block out much of the sunlight from reaching the forest floor. Therefore, organisms in the rainforest would most likely compete for sunlight in order to carry out photosynthesis and obtain the energy they need for survival and growth. This competition for sunlight is crucial for the survival and success of plants and other photosynthetic organisms in the rainforest ecosystem.

    Which is common to both temperate forest and rainforest biomes?

    • A.

      Plant-eating animals (herbivores)

    • B.

      A thick canopy of leaves overhead

    • C.

      Cacti that hold large amounts of water

    • D.

      Trees that lose their leaves in the winter

    Correct Answer
    A. Plant-eating animals (herbivores)
    Explanation
    Both temperate forests and rainforests have a common characteristic of having plant-eating animals or herbivores. This means that both biomes support a diverse range of animals that feed on plants as their primary source of food. This is an important feature as it indicates the presence of abundant vegetation in both biomes, which serves as a vital food source for these herbivorous animals.

    Which biome receives the least amount of rainfall?

    • A.

      Temperate forests

    • B.

      Tropical rainforests

    • C.

      Deserts

    • D.

      Grasslands

    Correct Answer
    C. Deserts
    Explanation
    Deserts receive the least amount of rainfall compared to other biomes. These regions are characterized by extremely arid conditions, with very little precipitation. The lack of rainfall in deserts is due to factors such as high temperatures, low humidity, and the presence of mountains that block moisture from reaching these areas. As a result, deserts have limited vegetation and are often covered in sand or rocks.

    Every ecosystem should provide the following for organisms to survive:

    • A.

      Food

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Shelter

    • D.

      Waste disposal

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    Every ecosystem should provide food, water, shelter, and waste disposal for organisms to survive. Food is essential for energy and nutrients, water is necessary for hydration and various bodily functions, shelter provides protection from predators and harsh weather conditions, and waste disposal ensures the removal of harmful substances from the environment. Therefore, all of these factors are crucial for the survival of organisms in an ecosystem.
