Mrs. Jos Succession Qz - Quiz

Primary and secondary succession
.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The first species to populate an area are?

    • A.

      Pioneer Species

    • B.

      Trailblazers

    • C.

      Cowboys

    Correct Answer
    A. Pioneer Species
    Explanation
    Pioneer species are the first organisms to colonize and establish themselves in a previously uninhabited or disturbed area. They are able to thrive in harsh conditions and are often characterized by their ability to tolerate extreme temperatures, low nutrient levels, and limited resources. These species play a crucial role in the process of ecological succession, paving the way for the establishment of more complex and diverse communities over time.

  • 2. 

    Pioneer Species are lichen and moses?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Pioneer species are the first organisms to colonize a barren or disturbed area. They are typically hardy and can survive in harsh conditions. Lichen and mosses are examples of pioneer species because they can grow on bare rock or soil and help to break it down, creating a suitable environment for other plants to grow. Therefore, the given answer, "True," is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

     This is an example of Primary or Secondary succession?

    • A.

      Primary

    • B.

      Secondary

    Correct Answer
    A. Primary
    Explanation
    This question is asking whether the given example is an instance of primary or secondary succession. The correct answer is "Primary." This means that the example in question is a case of primary succession, which occurs in an area that has been completely devoid of life, such as a newly formed volcanic island or a bare rock surface. In primary succession, pioneer species, such as lichens and mosses, gradually colonize the area and pave the way for the establishment of more complex plant and animal communities over time.

  • 4. 

    A stable state of maturity is at what point of succession?

    • A.

      Pioneer

    • B.

      Oppertunistic

    • C.

      Climax

    Correct Answer
    C. Climax
    Explanation
    In ecological succession, a stable state of maturity is reached at the climax stage. This is the final and most diverse stage of succession, where the community has reached a state of equilibrium and is able to sustain itself over a long period of time. The climax stage is characterized by a complex and diverse community of plants and animals, with a balance between energy production and consumption. It represents the ultimate goal of succession, where the ecosystem has reached its fullest potential and is able to support a wide range of species.

  • 5. 

    Primary or secondary?

    Correct Answer
    secondary
    Explanation
    Based on the given information, the correct answer is "secondary." However, without any context or additional information, it is difficult to provide a specific explanation for why "secondary" is the correct answer. It could refer to a secondary source, a secondary school, or any other concept related to the term "secondary."

    Dallas is part of what watershed?

    • A.

      Red river

    • B.

      Trinity river

    • C.

      Brazos river

    Correct Answer
    B. Trinity river
    Explanation
    Dallas is part of the Trinity river watershed because the Trinity river flows through the city of Dallas and is the major water source for the area. A watershed is an area of land where all the water that falls within it drains into a common body of water, in this case, the Trinity river. Therefore, Dallas is considered part of the Trinity river watershed.

    Compost using worms is:

    • A.

      Wormicompost

    • B.

      Vermicompost

    • C.

      Villacompost

    Correct Answer
    B. Vermicompost
    Explanation
    Vermicompost is the correct answer because it refers to compost that is made using worms. The prefix "vermi" means worm, so vermicompost specifically indicates composting with the help of worms. This method involves using special species of worms, such as red wigglers, to break down organic waste into nutrient-rich compost through their digestion process. Vermicompost is highly beneficial for plants and soil health due to its high nutrient content and improved soil structure.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What stage of succession would this be found in?

    • A.

      Primary

    • B.

      Secondary

    • C.

      Climax Community

    Correct Answer
    C. Climax Community
    Explanation
    This stage of succession, known as the climax community, refers to the final and most stable stage in the process of ecological succession. It is characterized by a mature and diverse community of organisms that have reached a state of equilibrium with their environment. The climax community represents a balance between the biotic and abiotic factors in the ecosystem, and it is typically dominated by long-lived and shade-tolerant species. This stage is often the result of a gradual and natural progression of ecological changes over a long period of time.

    Catastrophe's such as fire/flood/hurricane/tornado are always bad for the environment.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Catastrophes such as fire, flood, hurricane, or tornado can actually have both positive and negative effects on the environment. While they may cause immediate destruction and loss of habitat, they can also create opportunities for regeneration and renewal. For example, wildfires can clear out dead vegetation and promote the growth of new plants, while floods can deposit nutrient-rich sediment that enriches soil. Additionally, some ecosystems have adapted to thrive in the aftermath of natural disasters. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that catastrophes are always bad for the environment.

    Smithers thinks that a special juice will increase the productivity of workers. He creates two groups of 50 workers each and assigns each group the same task (in this case, they're supposed to staple a set of papers). Group A is given the special juice to drink while they work. Group B is not given the special juice. After an hour, Smithers counts how many stacks of papers each group has made. Group A made 1,587 stacks, Group B made 2,113 stacks.What is the Control Group?

    • A.

      Group A

    • B.

      Group B

    • C.

      Smithers Group

    Correct Answer
    B. Group B
    Explanation
    The control group in this experiment is Group B. The control group is the group that does not receive the special treatment or intervention being tested. In this case, Group B is the control group because they were not given the special juice. By comparing the productivity of Group A (the group that received the special juice) to Group B, Smithers can determine if the special juice had any effect on productivity.
