1. If you find a rock in the hills that contains a trilobite fossil, what might that fossil tell you about the hills? 2. Why do geologists believe that volcanic activity was more common in the past than it is today?

This is an answer for number one ONLY. 
Trilobite are prehistoric marine arthropods. They were sort of like crabs or spiders. The fossil was found on a hill. Hills are on land, and the trilobite lived in water. Unless left there by a previous visitor, the fossil tell that the hills were once underwater.

QUESTION POSTED AT 23/09/2019 - 03:17 AM

This is a major environmental concern in Central America. drought frost overpopulation rain forest protection

The correct answer is - rain forest protection.

One of the biggest environmental concerns in the Central American region is the protection of the tropical rain forests. Even though Central America is a relatively small region, it has an abundance of rain forests, but as the years pass by, there's major environmental concerns about their well being, and even about their existence.

Central America is in general a poor region with lot of problems, and unfortunately, when the people don't have it easy, they don't seem to care about the environment, especially if they see it as a source of income. The concerns are becoming bigger and bigger about the rain forests because more and more area is cleared out so that the land can be used for agriculture. Also the poaching of exotic animals, as well as the selling of high quality timber on the black market, are making a huge problem in the protection of the rain forests.

Which strata of the rainforest is teeming with animal life especially insects the largest animals in the rainforest generally live here. A Understory B Forest four C Canopy D Emergent

The correct answer is - B. Forest floor.

The forest floor in the rainforests has everything that the animals need for survival. Food, water, nicer temperature, lots of biomass, prey... Because of this, lots of animals are living mostly on the forest floor and doing their activities. Also, the largest animals are not well suited for life on the branches because of their weight, and also some species of animals just do not have the required ''equipment'' (claws, long strong tails for balance, rotational limbs and toes) for life in the canopies, so they prefer the floor.

British Columbia is Canada's most westerly province, and is a mountainous area whose population is mainly clustered in its southwestern corner. BC is Canada’s third-largest province after Québec and Ontario, making up 10 per cent of Canada’s land surface. British Columbia is a land of diversity and contrast within small areas. Coastal landscapes, characterized by high, snow-covered mountains rising above narrow fjords and inlets, contrast with the broad forested upland of the central interior and the plains of the northeast. The intense "Britishness" of earlier times is referred to in the province's name, which originated with Queen Victoria and was officially proclaimed in 1858.

QUESTION POSTED AT 23/09/2019 - 03:04 AM

Who were the leaders of the South American wars for independence

Independence movements in the northern regions of Spanish South America had an inauspicious beginning in 1806. The small group of foreign volunteers that the Venezuelan revolutionary Francisco de Miranda brought to his homeland failed to incite the populace to rise against Spanish rule. Creoles in the region wanted an expansion of the free trade that was benefiting their plantation economy. At the same time, however, they feared that the removal of Spanish control might bring about a revolution that would destroy their own power.Creole elites in Venezuela had good reason to fear such a possibility, for one such revolution had recently exploded in the French Caribbean colony of Saint-Dominque. Beginning in 1791, a massive slave revolt sparked a general insurrection against the plantation system and French colonial power. By the first years of the 19th century, the rebels had shattered what had been a model colony and forged the independent nation of Haiti.[3] Partly inspired by those Caribbean events, free blacks and slaves in Venezuela carried out their own uprisings in 1795 led by José Leonardo Chirino and José Caridad González. Just as it served as a beacon of hope for the enslaved, Haiti was a warning of everything that might go wrong for elites in the cacao-growing areas of Venezuela and throughout slave societies in the Americas.

Creole anxieties also contributed to the persistence of a strong loyalist faction in the Viceroyalty of New Granada, but they did not prevent the rise of an independence struggle there. Creoles organized revolutionary governments that proclaimed social and economic reforms in 1810 and openly declared a break with Spain the following year.
