How does a mosquito infect someone - use all key words
Mosquitoes carries a bacteria called Protanzoan which can be caught- causes malaria when a mosquito pierces/bites the skin of a person hence transfers Protozoan into the blood
1 of 31
How can pathogens spread -airbourne
Pathogens can be carried in air by droplets when you sneeze or cough- Influenza Virus that can be inhaled
2 of 31
How can pathogens spread through body fluids
Exchanging of blood can cause pathogens to spread e.g sharing needles to inject stuff or through sex e.g HIV
3 of 31
How can a vector housfly infect someone?
Housefly contain the bacteria dysentery that can land on food and contaminate it by infecting it hence when food is eaten will infect person
4 of 31
How can pathogens spread using water fluid
drinking contaminated water or dirty water may contain bacteria and cause cholera
5 of 31
How can pathogens spread directly
Comining in contact with contaminated or wet surfaces e.g through skin can catch pathogens
6 of 31
How can pathogens spread food and how is it cause
by eating contaminated food e.g can cause food poisoning and caused when food is under cooked or kept out for too long

why does bio mass bio energy decrease as you go up the tropic level
Through storage, movement, excretion, storage, and microbes when they decompose when animals die
8 of 31
How comes tropic levels usually only go up to 4
since threr is not enough biomass in the top level to provide energy needed by another tropic level

What is speciation
The formation of new species that are geographically separate and therefor can no longer breed with original species
