What is Goldberg and Andrew key idea in Patterns and consequences of interspecific competition in natural communities?
Competition always had significant effects on distribution patterns, on relative abundances, and on diversity, consistent with the notion that competition has strong effects on community structure

Which is not a key idea from Triantis and Bhagwat's Applied Island Biogeography?
Biodiversity is scale-dependent; that is, diversity depends strongly on the size of the units used in data collection. Three attributes of scale are particularly important in species richness studies: focus, grain and extent
2 of 7
Which is not a challenge in Game et al (2012) Pelagic protected areas: the missing dimension in ocean conservation?
There is increasing support for marine protected areas (MPAs) as a tool for pelagic conservation. In addition to supplying >80% of the fish consumed by humans, pelagic ecosystems account for nearly half of the photosynthesis on Earth.

Which is not a key statement in Jackson's What was natural in the coastal oceans?
Overfishing in the 19th century reduced vast beds of oysters in Chesapeake Bay and other estuaries to a few percent of pristine abundances and promoted eutrophication

Which is not a key idea in Holden's Energy flow, in An Introduction to physical geography and the environment?
Population cycle- where populations increase and decrease in size over prolonged periods of times due to various features that occur every so often.

Which is not a key idea from Bjorck's Younger Dryas Osciliation?
Axial wobble which is called the precession of the equinoxes. The gravitational pull exerted by the sun and the moon cause the earth to wobble on its axis
6 of 7
Which is not a signal in Labeyrie's Sub-Milankovitch/D/O and Heinrich Events?
With respect to the Younger Dryas oscillation, it is likely that a partial shutdown of the Atlantic conveyor belt decreased northern THC, which led to a warming in the Southern Ocean, explaining the early onset of the interglacial warming in south
