      Polar bears come to the tundra for the winter where they have their babies

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. It has a simple vegetation structure.
    C. It has a short season of growth and reproduction.
    Explanation
    The tundra is characterized by a simple vegetation structure, with low-growing plants such as mosses, lichens, and grasses. This is because the harsh climate and frozen soil make it difficult for larger plants to survive. Additionally, the tundra has a short season of growth and reproduction due to the cold temperatures and long winters. During this brief period, plants and animals must quickly take advantage of the available resources to reproduce and store enough energy to survive the rest of the year.

    Comlplete with the name of the proper layer.It has a very limited diversity. _____________

    Correct Answer
    Rainforest floor
    Explanation
    The given correct answer for this question is "Rainforest floor". The statement mentions that it has a very limited diversity. This suggests that the layer being referred to is the Rainforest floor. The Rainforest floor is the lowest layer of the rainforest, located on the ground. It is characterized by low light levels, high humidity, and a dense layer of decomposing organic matter. Due to these conditions, the diversity of plant and animal species in this layer is limited compared to the other layers of the rainforest.

    Comlplete with the name of the proper layer.Tall trees from this dense layer absorb most of the light energy. _____________

    Correct Answer
    Canopy layer
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that tall trees from a specific layer absorb most of the light energy. This layer is known as the canopy layer. The canopy layer is the uppermost layer of the forest, composed of the crowns of the tallest trees. These trees receive the most sunlight and therefore absorb the majority of the light energy. They create a dense layer that blocks much of the sunlight from reaching the lower layers of the forest.

    Explanation
    The given statement mentions that some tree species grow very tall, up to 150 feet. The term "emergent" refers to something that emerges or rises above the rest. In the context of forests, the emergent layer refers to the highest layer of the forest canopy, consisting of the tallest trees that rise above the canopy. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is "Emergent layer."
