Figure 10.1

Use Figure 10.1 to answer the following questions.

1) Refer to Figure 10.1. The second major cause of deforestation is ________. A) forest fires
B) agriculture
C) urban development, transportation, and recreation
D) industry and resource extraction
E) hydroelectricity
Answer: C
Diff: 1 Type: MC
Bloom's Taxonomy: 4 - Analyzing
Objective: 10.5 Land conversion and deforestation

2) Refer to Figure 10.1. The largest cause of deforestation in Canada today is ________. A) forest fires
B) industry and resource extraction
C) agriculture
D) forest roads
E) hydroelectricity
Answer: C
Diff: 1 Type: MC
Bloom's Taxonomy: 4 - Analyzing
Objective: 10.5 Land conversion and deforestation

3) Refer to Figure 10.1. The production of forest roads is a greater cause of deforestation than ________. A) industry and resource extraction
B) hydroelectricity
C) urban development, transportation, and recreation
D) agriculture
E) industry and resource extraction and hydroelectricity combined Answer: A
Diff: 1 Type: MC

Figure 10.2

Use Figure 10.2 to answer the following questions

4) Refer to Figure 10.2. The stomata are directly involved in ________. A) transpiration and evaporation
B) cohesion
C) water uptake
D) evaporation and water uptake
E) transpiration, evaporation, and water uptake
Answer: A
Diff: 1 Type: MC
Bloom's Taxonomy: 3 - Applying
Objective: 10.1 Basic requirements of trees

5) Refer to Figure 10.2. According to climate models used by IPCC, the climate change will increase temperature and precipitation in the northern part of Russia's boreal forests (taiga). For trees growing there this would mean ________. A) increased transpiration and increased water uptake

B) increased transpiration and decreased water uptake
C) decreased transpiration and increased water uptake
D) decreased transpiration and decreased water uptake
E) increased transpiration and decreased cohesion
Answer: A
Diff: 2 Type: MC
Bloom's Taxonomy: 4 - Analyzing
Objective: 10.1 Basic requirements of trees

6) Refer to Figure 10.2. When stomata open, they allow CO2 in, but "at the price" of letting some water out. Trees grown under high CO2 conditions tend to have fewer stomata, because they need fewer openings to get the same amount of CO2 into their leaves for photosynthesis. This means that the future CO2-rich atmosphere might benefit MOST the trees that grow today in soils with ________. A) shortage of nutrients

B) shortage of water
C) abundance of water and abundance of nutrients
D) abundance of water but shortage of nutrients
E) trees in all the soils listed above are likely to benefit equally Answer: D
Diff: 3 Type: MC
Bloom's Taxonomy: 4 - Analyzing
Objective: 10.1 Basic requirements of trees

10.2 Matching Questions

Match the following.

A) adhesion
B) CP Rail
C) Parks Canada
D) hardwood
E) down
F) softwood
G) Clayoquot Sound
H) Canadian Forest Service
I) An increase in infestation as warmer winters do not kill enough beetles J) osmosis
K) up
L) light forest
M) woodland
N) A decrease in infestation as beetles emerge earlier in spring when there is not enough food for them to survive O) MacMillan-Bloedel
P) Hudson Bay

1) Tzeporah Berman became a figurehead for a movement in British Columbia to stop the logging of a particular area. Diff: 2 Type: MA
Bloom's Taxonomy: 1 - Remembering
Objective: 10.6 Forest management

2) Its mission is to protect natural resources for future generations through the use of restrictions and prohibition of resource extraction, while providing public access for current enjoyment Diff: 2 Type: MA
