Invasive Species

Easy

(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Easy of Environmental science

The Florida Everglades is a unique ecosystem that is home to many species of plants and animals. However, the introduction of the Burmese python, a non-native species, has caused significant changes within this ecosystem. Based on your knowledge of invasive species and their impacts on ecosystems, how could the introduction of the Burmese python lead to changes in the biodiversity of the Florida Everglades?
a.
The introduction of the Burmese python into the Florida Everglades can lead to significant changes in biodiversity, including a decrease in prey species, other predator populations, and potentially changes in plant communities.
b.
The introduction of the Burmese python into the Florida Everglades leads to an increase in plant communities as it preys on herbivores.
c.
The introduction of the Burmese python into the Florida Everglades has no significant impact on the biodiversity as it adapts to the existing ecosystem.
d.
The introduction of the Burmese python into the Florida Everglades increases biodiversity as it adds a new species to the ecosystem.
e.
The introduction of the Burmese python into the Florida Everglades leads to an increase in prey species as it competes with other predators.

Imagine you are an environmental scientist studying the effects of an invasive species, the zebra mussel, on a local lake ecosystem. Over the years, you've observed significant changes in the native species populations and water clarity. Based on your observational data and understanding of zebra mussels' ecological role, what potential impacts could the continued spread of this invasive species have on the overall health of the lake ecosystem?

Invasive species are non-native organisms that cause harm to ecosystems where they are introduced. They can disrupt the balance of these systems, often leading to negative effects on biodiversity, economic damage, and even human health. Based on your understanding of the concept of invasive species and their impacts, describe how the introduction of an invasive species can lead to a cascade of changes in an ecosystem. In your response, consider how the invasive species might affect various trophic levels and also discuss potential long-term consequences for the ecosystem's biodiversity.

The ozone layer is essential for the protection of life on Earth, as it acts as a shield that absorbs a large portion of the ultraviolet (UV) rays emitted by the Sun, allowing the existence of ecosystems and biodiversity on our planet. However, human activities have caused depletion of the ozone layer, increasing our exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays. (a) Justify the importance of the ozone layer for life on Earth. (b) Identify and explain two factors that contribute to the increase or decrease of ozone presence in the atmosphere. (c) Discuss individual and collective proposals for the preservation of the ozone layer and actions that can be taken to minimize this issue.
