(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Hard of Environmental science

Considering the wide array of aquatic biomes, such as oceans, lakes, rivers, and wetlands, each of them is characterized by distinct physical conditions, biological communities, and geographic distributions. Given the increasing human-induced changes to these ecosystems through pollution, over-fishing, and climate change, critically evaluate how these alterations might influence the biodiversity and functioning of these aquatic biomes over the next century.
a.
Human-induced changes such as pollution, over-fishing, and climate change can lead to a significant decrease in biodiversity and a disruption of ecosystem functioning in aquatic biomes over the next century.
b.
Human-induced changes such as pollution, over-fishing, and climate change will have no significant impact on the biodiversity and functioning of aquatic biomes over the next century.
c.
Human-induced changes such as pollution, over-fishing, and climate change will lead to an increase in biodiversity and enhancement of ecosystem functioning in aquatic biomes over the next century.
d.
Only pollution will lead to a significant decrease in biodiversity and a disruption of ecosystem functioning in aquatic biomes over the next century.
e.
Only climate change will lead to a significant decrease in biodiversity and a disruption of ecosystem functioning in aquatic biomes over the next century.

Question 1:

Easy

An estuary is a type of aquatic biome where freshwater from rivers and streams meets and mixes with saltwater from the ocean, creating a unique environment. Given the characteristics of estuaries, such as varying salinity and nutrient-rich mud, how do these factors influence the type and diversity of life forms that can be found in this biome?

Consider the distinct aquatic biomes: oceans, lakes, rivers, and wetlands. Each biome is unique, sustaining a variety of life forms and playing a crucial role in the global ecosystem. Given their different characteristics, how would the biodiversity in a freshwater lake biome differ from that of a marine or oceanic biome, and how do these differences influence the overall health and resilience of these aquatic biomes?
