100

Thins as a result of widespread use of certain chlorine-containing compounds.
What is the ozone layer

100

Term used to describe the phenomenon in which young ducks follow their mother in a line
What is imprinting

100

The process in which CO2, CH4, and water vapor in the atmosphere intercepts and absorbs reflected infrared radiation and re-reflects it back to Earth.
What is the greenhouse effect

100

Enzyme Catylysis (Lab 2): You should add more of this in efforts to keep the reaction constant over a period of time.
What is substrate

100

Photosynthesis (Lab 4): Acted as an electron acceptor.
What is DPIP

200

Considered the major primary producer in a savanna ecosystem.
What is grass

200

The term usd to describe when Pavlov's dogs learned to salivate when they heard the ring of a particular bell.
What is classical conditioning

200

Increased predation by a predator, a limited number of nesting sites, intraspecific competition, and/or a stress syndrome that alters hormone levels could all be considered this.
What is density dependent limiting factor

200

Dissolved Oxygen (Lab 12): term used to describe the organic materials that remain after photosynthetic organisms in the ecosystem have used some of these compounds for their cellular energy needs.
What is Net productivity

200

Dissolved Oxygen (Lab 12): Can be measured in three ways: 1. measure the amount of CO2 used. 2. Measure the rate of sugar formation. 3. Measure the rate of oxygen production.
What is primary productivity

300

The maximum population size that a certain environment can support at a particular time.
What is carrying capacity

300

A loss of responsiveness to stimuli that convey very little or no information. (Ex. cats no longer run to their food bowl in the mornings because their owner stops feeding them during that time of the day.)
What is habituation

300

Removal of this species could result in a severe reduction in species diveresity for that communitiy.
What is keystone species

300

Dissolved Oxygen (Lab 12): High amounts of DO are found in this type of water (two describing words)
What is cold and fast moving

300

Animal Behavior (Lab 11): Pill bugs will display this type of movment when exposed to a dark and wet environmet.
What is Kinesis

400

Major types of ecosystems that occupy broad geographic regions.
What is biome

400

Sticlebacks, a type of fish, display this type of behavior in response to a sign stimulus.
What is Fixed action pattern (FAP)

400

Humans and large mammals display this type of curve which begins steady and stable (reamins level), but then drastically declines in mortality when an old age is reached.
What is Type I survivorship

400

Enzyme Catalysis (Lab 2): Adding H2SO4 stopped the reaction rate for all the trials because it caused this.
What is denaturing of the enzyme/active site. (a.a.)

400

Diffusion/Osmosis (Lab 1): This increased when water moved into the potato cells (not mass).
What is water potential

500

A term that descibes a lake that is nutrient rich and supports a vast array of algae.
What is eutrophic

500

An animal behavior in which one memeber of a population risks or sacrafices its own life for the well being of the rest of the population.
What is Altruism

500

One example of this is when Oxpeckers ride on the backs of rhinocerouses and eat various skin parasites, such as ticks.
What is mutualism

500

Dissolved Oxygen (Lab 12): This can increase DO (not temperature change) and this, on the other hand, can decrease DO.
What is photosynthesis and respiration

500

Cellular Respiration (Lab 5): This was added because it binded with carbon dioxide to form a solid, preventing CO2 production from affecting gas volume.
What is KOH
