16. Crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) is a type of photosynthesis. A plant using CAM takes in carbon dioxide (CO2) at nighttime, when it is cooler. The plant changes the CO2 into an acid.

Low-altitude, because the air pressure is greater closer to sea level B.

Desert, because plants living in the desert have little water available C. High-altitude, because the night air is cooler in alpine zones of mountains D. Aquatic, because plants living in water need more carbohydrates to avoid drowning 17. Which table shows adaptations that allow organisms to survive in a marshy wetland environment?

A. B. C. D. 18. A new organism is discovered on the floor of a forest. Its picture is shown below. Which of these is most

likely the forest where it was found? A. Coniferous Forest B. Taiga C. Deciduous Forest D. Tropical Rainforest 19. A student is determining which biome an area is in. He takes a picture (shown below) while walking in the area. Which of these describes the biome? A. Coniferous Forest B. Taiga

Over time advantageous traits will be found in more of the population.

27. The Bird of Paradise is a species that has been observed in the jungles of New Guinea. In an attempt to attract females, the males shake their bodies and sometimes hang upside down to show off their bright colors and long feathers. Females generally chose to mate with the showiest males. Which concept is supported by these observations? A. An organisms individual physical growth can be dependent on behaviors of the population. B. Asexual reproduction can lead to demanding courtship displays to attract mates for diversity. C. Behaviors that lead to reproductive success have evolved in

C. Rabbit D. Squirrel 31. Overfishing of Striped Bass has depleted their numbers. Which of these explains the impact on the Blue Crab population? A. The population will decrease because of less food. B. The population will decrease because of less predation.

C. The population will increase because of less food. D. The population will increase because of less predation. 32. A scientist discovers that Algae are beginning to receive more sunlight. How will this impact the Horseshoe Crab population? A. More sunlight will lead to increased algae growth which will

decrease the number of horseshoe crabs. B. More sunlight will lead to increased algae growth which will increase the number of horseshoe crabs. C. More sunlight will lead to decreased algae growth which will decrease the number of horseshoe crabs.
