Review Chapter 21. Question 12 of 31 You have been designated to choose a place for a wildlife and ecosystem preserve. You want to choose a biodiversity hot spot. Which location would you choose? • A. Canadian temperate forest • B. Scandinavian taiga • C. Indo-Burma rainforest • D. Subtropical desert Feedback:In general, the greatest biodiversity can be found in rainforests. Review Chapter 21.

Review Chapter 21. Question 14 of 31 Several pet Burmese pythons escape a breeding facility when a hurricane destroys the building. With a limited number of predators their population quickly grows. Declines in native animal populations are severe. This is an example of what? • A. overharvesting • B. habitat loss • C. climate change • D. exotic species Feedback:Because Burmese pythons are not local to the breeding facility and there are very few predators, they are considered exotic.

A coral reef with 36 fish, which include 10 different species • C. A desert with 12 different species of insects • D. A forest with 25 trees, which include 2 different species Feedback:Relative abundance refers to how rare or common a species is relative to other species, so the distribution is important here. Review Chapter 21.
