A special protected territory that is completely removed from an economical use is: zapovednik natural heritage national park biosphere reservate botanical garden 19. The main reason of Aral Sea catastrophe is: careless use of water for irrigation a natural disaster land degradation caused by the Amu-Darya and Syr-Darya rivers flood over-fishing ater pollution 20.
Ecological footprint (of a country or each person) is: the average amount of productive land and ocean needed to supply with food, energy, water, housing, transportation, and waste disposal the average for each country total value of all life quality indices the quality of satisfaction with material and cultural human needs the cost of all goods and services, produced in a country for a given year the level of welfare of a country and its citizens 21 . The largest landscape zone of Kazakhstan is: desert forest steppe mountains grassland 22.
External cost is: armful environmental or social cost borne by people not directly involved in buying or selling a product the cost of environment friendly equipment and technologies the cost of all goods and services, produced in a country per year a measure of the total income of nation?¤?‚¬ws goods and services for a given year earth?¤?‚¬ws resources and processes that sustain living organisms, including humans 23. Industries can help to mitigate problems with water supply by: recycling water during industrial operations marsh drying Oam constructlon releasing of farmer run-off releasing of detergents to the domestic water system 4.

The amount of the earth?¤?‚¬ws water supply available to land organisms is: less than 1% about 10% more than 50% about 5% about 3% 28.
The world amount of fresh water is: about 1% about 70% 29. Land area of the Earth occupied by the rain forest is: about 25% 30. Land area of the Earth occupied by the forest (including tropical, moderate, boreal) is: about 25% 31. Inaustrles contrl ute o D t na tat damage ana use proper drainage system produce freons plant trees organize natural parks and reserves 32. The primary cause of species extinction is: destruction of habitats exposure to hazardous waste biological magnification acid rain global warming 33.
Biological magnification is the process of: oestructlon I T tney: pollute water increasing concentration of hazardous wastes through food chains concentration of alcium deposits in the shells of dead organisms algal bloom in a lake accumulation of organics in the water reservoirs biogeochemical cycles 34. To prevent or reduce waste it should be done: to use recycled materials whenever possible to transport hazardous waste rather than treating on-site to use over-packaging to avoid using a catalytic converter to release waste into the domestic sewage system 35.
The main physical reason of the photochemical smog is: atmosphere temperature inversion wind speed mixing between air layers atmosphere gas composition precipitation 36. The major component of photochemical smog is: ropospheric ozone sulfur dioxide particulates carbon dioxide 37. The primary reason of acid rain is: burning fossil fuels wood cutting ozone layer depletion marsh drainage water thermal pollution 38. Acid rain is harmful because it can: dissolve nutrients and toxic metals in the soil cause skin cancer in humans cause land flooding destroy ozone layer Increase eart n temperature 39.

The chemical compounds that can cause acid rain: sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide cetic and carbonic acid methane and ammonia carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide ozone and particulates 42. Loss of ozone has serious effects in people because ultra-violet radiation can cause: skin cancer and eye damage liver and kidneys damage respiratory and nervous system damage hepatitis and heart attack anemia and diarrhea 43.
To stop ozone layer depletion it should be done: to replace or recycle freons used in fridge and cooling systems to stop wood cutting to use solar power to use a nuclear power to use geothermal energy 44. The heights of troposphere and stratosphere above the earth: 0-15 km and 15-55 m respectively 0-5 km and 5-50 km respectively 0-10 and 10-80 km respectively 0-12 and 12-100 km respectively 0-20 and 20-200 km respectively 45.

The main characteristic of biomass pyramids of freshwater or marine is to be: inverted right depends on a particular ecosystem do not change changes cyclically 58.
According to number pyramids, a quantity of organisms at a higher trophic level: decreases increases 59. Amount of energy passing from one trophic level to the next one is: 10% 00% 25% 1% 60. Consumers, such as humans, that obtain their nutrients by eating both producers and other consumers are called: omnivores carnivores herbivores scavengers autotrophs 61 . Consumers, such as wolves, that obtain their nutrients by eating other consumers are: carnivores omnivores autotropns 62. Consumers that obtain their nutrients by eating producers are: herbivores 63.
The wolf and the fox are on the same trophic level because both animals: eat herbivore organisms live on the land use food at 10% have large size have similar behavior 64. Autotrophic organisms are: plants birds reptiles 65. Heterotrophic organisms are: jellyfish chemosynthetic bacteria photosynthetic bacteria phototrophs 66. Organisms that use ready food are called: heterotrophs chemotrophs producers 67. Nitrogen in the atmosphere is captured by: nitrogen-fixing bacteria nitrifying bacteria denitrifying bacteria 68.
Primary productivity is the energy contained in the trophic level of: producers decomposers 69. Plants in an ecosystem play the following role: synthesize organic substances from inorganic compounds are primary consumers decompose organic substances to inorganic compounds are secondary consumers are decomposers 0. Define the right order of components in the trophic chain “tree producer – primary consumer – secondary consumer heterotroph – primary consumer – secondary consumer autotroph – heterotroph – decomposer producer – heterotroph – decomposer producer – consumer – decomposer 71 .
The following is Not correctly matched: herbivore – autotroph heterotroph – consumer phototroph – plants carnivore – animals bacteria – decomposer 72. The major producers found in aquatic ecosystems are: aquatic plants zooplankton benthos – hare- fox”: 73. Two species that occupy a very similar niche are likely to be: competitors ommensalists mutualists predators parasites 74. An interaction between two species in which species benefit each other is: mutualism parasitism competition predation commensalism 75.
Type of biotic relationship when one species benefits and other one has neither harm nor profit: commensalism 76. Example of interspecific competition is relationship between: black cockroaches and red cockroaches thinning fur trees out in a population organism-host and worms-parasite wolves in a pack some mushrooms and trees 77. Competition, predation, and symbiosis are all types of: biotic relationships
