2. Which non living indicator of environmental change can be used to detect changes in the temperature of sea surfaces?

  • Dissolved Oxygen Meters
  • Satellites
  • Rain Gauges
  • Mayfly Larvae

3. Choose the correct statement

  • Desert animals have shallow but extensive roots to reach water underground
  • Desert animals have a small surface area compared to volume
  • Desert animals have thin coats and layers of fat to maximise heat loss
  • Desert animals have thick coats and blubber to reduce heat loss

4. What can different species of lichen help us identify?

  • Amount of dissolved oxygen in water
  • The temperature of sea surfaces
  • Amount of air pollution (Sulphur Dioxide)
  • Amount of water pollution

5. Why do Cacti have spines instead of leaves?

  • Because the spines store fat for the Cacti
  • Because plants lose water vapour from the surface of their leaves and Cacti need to reduce water loss
  • Because the spines lose water vapour and maximise heat loss
  • Because they need to attract predators
