HELP PLEASE In the ocean, zooplankton feed on diatoms. Why does the diatom mass increase in April and May? Why does the zooplankton mass take until July and August to reach its max point?

During April and May, the inflow of the nutrients allows diatoms to grow, multiply and flourish. Their population increases rapidly during this time.
In June-July, strong upwelling currents take diatoms to the shore and their population starts declining. Further, other organisms start eating diatoms and their population further declines.

Plants use nitrogen in fertilizers for growth. However, much of the nitrogen goes unused. What is one direct outcome of this excess nitrogen?

There are many environmental negative direct outcomes of unused excess nitrogen from nitrogenous fertilizers. One of these is eutrophication. Eutrophication is the excessive richness of nutrients in a water body as a result of fertilizer run offs from the land, which causes a dense growth of plants in the water. Other negative outcomes are: green house effects, acid rain and contamination of underground water which has negative effects on human health.

QUESTION POSTED AT 17/10/2019 - 09:03 AM

Cranberries and grapes may have therapeutic value. A cranberry company obtained the patent for a process to extract the oil from cranberry seeds. According to the patent, this oil can be used to treat breast cancer or to reduce its incidence. The oil can be used in drinks and foods. A grape juice company claims to have evidence that certain grapes have health benefits ranging from improving cardiovascular health to improving cognitive brain function in the elderly. These claims will be tested by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before the companies are allowed to market their products for “treating” ailments or “improving” health. Until then, the companies can describe that their products “help to maintain” or “support” health. Until studies support their claims, the companies cannot ascribe direct health benefits to their products. Why would the FDA perform tests when a cranberry company and a grape company have already conducted research on the same products? The FDA is the only organization that can test if health actually improves. Tests that are performed by any company which benefits financially are considered unreliable. The FDA tests give reliability to the results of improved health obtained by each company. Tests performed by the FDA follow established scientific methods, but those performed by companies do not.

Answer:

The correct answer will be option-The FDA tests give reliability to the results of improved health obtained by each company.

Explanation:

The Food and Drug Administration or FDA is a United States federal agency established to control the food safety under the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

The FDA helps control the issues related to the safety of the food and food products like dietary supplements along with pharmaceutical drugs, biopharmaceuticals, cosmetics and other products under the Acts.

In the given question the juices before released to the market are tested by the FDA as the FDA results support the results of the research performed by the company and the give the reliability to the results.

Thus, the selected option re the correct answer.

How does upwelling affect the fish that live close to the surface of the ocean?

Because the deep water brought to the surface is often rich in nutrients, coastal upwelling supports the growth of seaweed and plankton. These, in turn, provide food for fish, marine mammals, and birds.

In the experiment, you will determine whether having worms in the soil causes lima bean plants to grow more, less, or the same. Write a scientific question that you are answering by doing this lab. Write your question in general terms, not in terms of worms and lima bean plants.

Let us systematically break our problem into hypothesis, testable version of hypothesis, constant, and variables.

Hypothesis: In the experiment, you will determine whether having worms in the soil affects the growth of lima bean plants.

Variables: Independent variable - presence of worms, dependent variable - amount of growth in lima bean plants (measured as the change in length of the plant shoot)

Constant: Amount of soil, amount of water given to the plant.

Our question would be a testable version of the hypothesis.

Testable hypothesis:

1. Presence of worms in soil will promote growth of lima bean plants.

2. Presence of worms in soil will stop the growth of lima bean plants.

Null hypothesis: Presence of worms in soil will not affect the growth of lima bean plants.

While trying to answer the question our goal will be to first reject the null hypothesis by gathering evidence through experimental observation. Then, we will test the parts 1 and 2 of the testable hypothesis.

The cell membranes begin to come apart when there is insufficient water around the cells. The cytoplasm of the cells becomes more concentrated, which slowly poisons the cells. The cell walls become brittle as they dry out, and some of them collapse. The central vacuoles in the cells lose water and can no longer help support the cells.

When the function of a whole ecosystem is limited because of a nutrient , which is present in limited amount, it is called as a limiting nutrient. The organisms uptake water and carbon directly from the environment as it is abundant in nature. The nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorous are present in limited amount and moreover they are not present in the form that can be directly taken up by the organism.
