Unit 1: Match each word with its correct deftnition. Words 1. However, this is not without untold harm to the environment. The effects of logging extend beyond just the felling of a swath of trees. Nutrients, water. B Trees protect the soil beneath them; thus, tree loss can affect soil integrity.

For example, the rain forest floor, home to myriad plant life as well as insects, worms, reptiles and amphibians, and small mammals, relies on a dense canopy of branches and leaves to keep it healthy and intact. The canopy prevents surface runoff by intercepting heavy rainfall so that water can drip down slowly onto the porous earth.

Tree roots also stabilize the soil and help prevent erosion. In return, a healthy soU encourages root development and microbial activity, which contribute to tree growth and well-being. Eventually, the topsoil wears away, leaving behind an infertile layer of rocks and hard clay. Vegetation along rivers and stream banks helps maintain a steady water flow by blocking the entry of soU and other residue, and tree shade inhibits the growth of algae.

D Trees provide a natural defense against air pollution. Cutting down trees keeps pollutants 10 Water quality 1n nearby streams and rivers also detertorates as tree loss contrtbutes to increased sedimentation.

Deforestation is responsible for about one-fifth of carbon dioxide emissions worldwide, making 1t a major contributor to cllmate change-in particular, global warming. In the site basin alone, deforestation is responsible for mons of tons of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere annually. Some logging companies bum large tracts of forest just to facilitate access to one area-a practtce2 that discharges even more carbon dioxide.

F Forests, espec1ally the tropical rain forests, are a vital natural resource with extensive biodiversity and irreplaceable wtldltfe habitats.

Match each word with its correct definition. Migration is an excellent example of how nature has responded to the biological imperative for species to evolve and spread out into all possible ecological niches that can provide the conditions necessary for species to breed and raise young.

The most common form of bird migration involves traveltng1 to higher latitudes to breed during the warm season and then returning to lower latitudes during the nonbreedtng period. This form of migration allows birds to breed tn areas that provide optimal conditions for nesting and feeding their young. No land birds are known to migrate into the higher latitudes of the Southern Hemisphere; only species of seabirds migrate to the Southern Hemisphere to breed.

A well-lmown example of transequatorial migration is the arctic tern. This tern, which breeds in the arctic regions and winters in antarctic waters, travels 24, miles a year durtng migration. Not all migration is long distance. Some species exhibit altitudinal migration. Many rock pt: An extreme example of nonstop bird migration is done by the 1BrE: At the start of its trip, about 55 percent3 of its body weight is made up of the fat necessary to fue. How birds manage to unerringly travel between distant locations is one aspect that has fascinated obsetvers for centurtes.

Modem-day researchers have attempted to understand this feat. Most studies have found that migratory birds all have some ability to navigate and an innate drive to travel in a particular direction.

Nocturnal migrants, those species that travel at night, seem to take their navigational cues from the stars. When the stars are obscured by clouds, nocturnal migrants may become confused and return to land or stray off course. In addition, diurnal migrants have also been shown to use geographic features such as mountain ranges or seacoasts as other cues for navigation. Because the stars and the sun move constantly over the course of twenty-four hours, this suggests that migrating birds also have some sense of time.

Answer the questions about Bird Migration. Questions Do the following statements agree with the information in the reading passage? Write TRUE if the statement agrees with the information. FALSE if the statement contradicts the information. Transequatorial birds cross from one hemisphere to the other when they migrate. Many migratory birds breed in the Southern Hemisphere. Migrating birds spend the warm months where conditions for breeding are optimal.

Many birds fail in their migration because they do not have enough body fat to fuel the journey. Match each type ofbird with the correct description.

Write the correct letter, A or B. They navigate by looking at the sun. They navigate by looking at the stars. They may stop flying when clouds obscure the sky. They navigate by looking at landforms.

Yet, transitional areas between the open desert and oases on the desert fringe support diverse plant forms that not only have adapted to the harsh conditions but actually thrive there. Successful desert plants are resilient to scorching summers and frigid winters, drought, and high-salt conditions.

The plants' principal defense4 against these environmental stressors consists of drawing in as much water as possible while minimizing moisture loss. Tamarix ramosissima, and Alhagi sparsifolta-represent some ofthe most diverse, prolific vegetation in the area; although they share many sUIVival strategies, each has developed unique coping mechanisms of its own. The Euphrates poplar, Populus euphrattca.

These stomata generally remain open during the day while the plant conducts photosynthesis. It takes in unlimited amounts of salt through the roots, up the stem, and into leaves, where it dilutes the normally toxic salt by increasing the number and volume of its cells. Tamarix ramosissima, a small tree with needlelike leaves commonly known as tamarisk or salt cedar, takes in enormous amounts of water via a far-reaching root system many times the size of the plant above ground.

Notice that everything else that fllls your whole area ofpossible sight is indistinct. We tolerate this large outlying field of blur. We unconsciously accept it.

Sometimes we take charge of howwe process all that blur surrounding the tiny center1 that our vision is focused on. Athletes best demonstratejust how much we can use the entire range of our vision, fanning out to the periphety. An athlete's performance, necessitating high levels of coordination and reaction time, depends on tratntng visual abilities, not just tuning muscles.

Detecting and keeping track of as much motion as possible whUe perfonning physical maneuvers Is quite a feat. Peripheral visual information is processed quickly. Each peripherally viewed movement must be immediately processed as more and varied movements from different sources and directions keep coming rapidly.

The athlete's view, full of movement, requires rapid scanning with visual focus changing rapidly among various distances. A volleyball player, for example, must pay attention to body positioning in relation to the speed and angle of the moving ball as well as to the court boundaries. Athletes need as much peripheral range as possible. The environment contributes to athletes' visual sharpness. It seems odd that visiting baseball teams are allowed to dress in gray uniforms when bright colors would help the home team keep a better eye on them.

Everything that catches the athlete's attention causes the eyes to pause almost indiscerntbly as they gather a quick view of focused detail. As the eyes move in and out of focus, there Is a momentary blur between each pause. This Is when visual tracking errors can occur.

Although the modem circus has been around for a few centuries, related forms of public entertainment have been in existence for millennia.

The ancient Romans were the first to enjoy the circus. Around the sixth centwy B. These entertainments were less common than chariot races but still vecy popular. The original Circus Maximus venue was built entirely of wood. Chariot races continued to be held at the Circus Maximus for almost a centwy after the last remnants of the Roman Empire had vanished.

It was during the Dark Ages that the circus began to develop into what we know today. The monarchs of Europe had court jesters, whose duty it was to provide amusement for the court. These performers made up the medieval circus, which had little in common with the Circus Max: Leisure time was extremely rare during the Dark Ages, and people had few opportunities to enjoy circus performances. However, the circus survived to make a return to its former grandeur in the eighteenth centucy.

England was one of the first nations to embrace the modem circus. During the late s, an Englishman named Phtlip Astley founded the first modem circus. He was a skilled rider who invented stunt riding on horseback.
