Ecology Trivia Quiz - Quiz

There is always something to learn about nature, isn't it? It's an ecology trivia quiz for nature lovers. Ecology is meant by a study that focuses on the environment. This study helps us know and understand how organisms live and cope with each other in unique physical environments. Below are some trivia questions that will freshen up your memory and take you to the world of lovely nature with birds chirping sounds. Go for it. .


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    In some parts of the world, rainforests are being cut down to make land available for new homes. How does the loss of these trees impact the carbon cycle? 
    • A. 

      The trees will no longer be able to undergo photosynthesis which will decrease the amount of oxygen within the atmosphere.

    • B. 

      The trees will no longer be able to undergo photosynthesis which will decrease the amount of carbon removed from the atmosphere.

    • C. 

      The trees will no longer be able to undergo respiration which will cause the amount of carbon within the atmosphere to be removed.

    • D. 

      The trees will no longer be able to undergo respiration which will decrease the amount of fossil fuels produced.

  • 2. 
    Evaluate the following statements and decide which of the following best describes the role of bacteria in the nitrogen cycle.
    • A. 

      Bacteria turn oxygen into nitrogen for plants to use.

    • B. 

      Bacteria turn nitrogen into a usable form called ammonia for plant use.

    • C. 

      Bacteria turn carbon dioxide into oxygen during the process of photosynthesis.

    • D. 

      Bacteria turn nitrogen into a usable form in a process called transpiration.
