Law of thermodynamics states that when energy is transferred or transformed, part of the energy assumes a form that cannot pass on any further

two types of interspecific competition

ratio of food assimilated into biomass to the food ingested

ratio of productivity from one trophic level to the trophic level that feeds on it.

Species that do not feed but are at are fed upon

location in a food web where and organism from which an organism obtains its energy

secondary compounds produced by plants to reduce digestability

Hello Customer,


I noticed the following term's definition was omitted:

Functional response--the relationship between the per capita rate of consumption and the number of prey

thank you so much>>>can you help with three papers due this week for me?


Expert:  Chris M. replied 5 years ago.

Hello again,


I'll have a look at the other questions you have posted and see if these are something with which I can I can help you. Did you have any questions about the matching biology definitions assignment?



Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Ohh no, they were great!!

The increased levels of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, have led some scientists to postulate that terrestrial plants will increase their rates of carbon fixation through photosynthesis in response. However, plant physiology experiments to date show mixed results. One surprising result was that, though plants did increase their rates of photosynthesis for a time, with continued exposure to elevated levels of carbon dioxide, plants responded by actually synthesizing less of the photosynthetic enzyme rubisco and reduced the rates of photosynthesis to rates comparable to lower concentrations of carbon dioxide. This phenomenon is called downregulation. This is of concern because some atmospheric scientists are looking to enhanced plant growth to remove the excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Write an original statement 250 words:
Considering this and the concepts presented in this unit, propose a response to the following question, explain your answer and give an example supporting your position:
Because of physiological limitations such as downregulation, plants will not increase their uptake of carbon dioxide in response to increased levels in the atmosphere, and will not increase their relative significance in the removal and sequestration of carbon dioxide.
