What is the unit of energy transfer in pyramid of energy?
KJ m^2 year^1
1 of 5
What are the advantages of biological agents as pest controls?
Specific to one pest; Reproduces itself so only needs on application; Do not leave chemical residue in environment; Pests do not develop resistance; Used in organic farming; Keeps population low
2 of 5
What are the disadvantages of biological agents are pest controls?
Do not get rid of pest completely; May become a pest itself; Slow acting
3 of 5
Explain how reactions occurring in the mitochondria generate ATP
Oxidation from pyruvater; Production of reduced NAD and FAD in matrix of mitochondria; Electrons passed to electron transport chain; used in oxidative phosphorylation; ATPase; stalked particles; electrons lose energy; Substrate level phosphorylation;
4 of 5
What happens to Pyruvate in anaerobic conditions and what advantage is this to the human skeletal muscles?
Forms lactate; Use of reduced NAD/NADH; NAD can be re-used to oxidise more respiratory substrate; Glycolysis continues; Can still release energy by forming ATP when oxygen is in short supply
