A group of organisms that have the same structure and can reproduce with each other.

What is a species

100

What does the five kingdom classification system consist of?

What is animals, plants, fungi, protista (single celled organisms) and monera (bacteria)

100

Variation within a species

What is variability

100

A compound that dissolves in water to form a solution with a PH lower than 7

What is an acid.

100

-Human drinking water -Recreation such as swimming -Livestock drinking water -Irrigation -Protection of aquatic life

Biological Diversity
What is all the different types of organisms living on earth.

200

Niche
What is the role of an organism within an ecosystem

200

The disappearance of a species from the entire planet.
What is extinction.

200

PH
What is the number of a solution that indicates its acidity.

200

Invertebrates
What are animals without backbones.

300

Abiotic Factors
What is air, water, and sunlight

300

Explain mutualism, parasitism, and commensalism
What is both organisms involve benefit from the relationship. One organism benefits and the other is harmed. One benefits, the other is not harmed, and doesn't benefit.

300

a local extinction of a species from a particular area
What is extirpation

300

A compound that dissolves in water to form a solution with a PH higher than 7
What is a base

300

PPM
What is parts per million.

400

Variation between members of a population- these are caused by variations in the cells of the organisms.
What is genetic diversity

400

This happens when 2 or more species need the same resource.
What is interspecies competition

400

Species in immediate danger of extinction or extirpation
What is endangered species

400

True or false, a higher PH= lower acidity
What is true

400

Decreased dissolved oxygen
What is leads to less animal and plant life.

500

The difference between biotic and abiotic.
What is living and non-living

500

Organisms dividing up one resource among themselves.
What is resource partitioning.

500

Threatened species
What is very likely to become endangered.

500

Substances that can change color when they are placed in solutions: blue litmus paper turns red in an acid and blue in a base
What is an acid/base indicator.

500

how poisonous a substance is
What is toxicity.
