    2. use_____ _______ that enhance access to energy sources (increase ____ _____ or add _____ _____)
    3. use energy sources that are more readily _______.
    • 1. growth
    • 2. modified structures (surface area, filtering mechanisms)
    • 3. available
  2. Herbivores and carnivores low on the food chain are usually inc constant motion to ensure they acquire sufficient energy from a ____ ____ source.

    Higher level carnivores do not nave to be in constant motion because they retain _____ _____ per _____.
    • lower quality
    • higher energy return food source
  3. Strategies carnivores use to get prey.
    • ambush
    • stalk and trap
    • search and pursue
  4. Charecteristics of Water (6)
    • high specific heat
    • high surface tension
    • high heat of vaporization
    • solid form is less dense
    • great solubility
  5. Diffusion
    the movement of particles from regions of higher density to regions of lower density
  6. Osmosis
    diffusion of molecules through a ______ ______ from a place of higher concentration to a place of lower concentration until the concentration on both sides are equal
    semipermeable membrane
  7. Freshwater has 0% salt.
    Saltwater has _% salinity or greater.
    ____ is in teh middle.
    • 3
    • Brackish
  8. When organisms have lower concentrations of water than the environment they are in; 1. they maintain _____ ______ w/environment via ____ _____ of solutes across a _____. 2. ____ ____ help withstand internal pressure of water. 3. Water is forced out using _____ _____.
    • 1. isotomic balance, active transport, membrane.
    • 2. cell walls
    • 3. contractile vacuole
  9. Unicellular strategies in water:
    _______ conform to the surrounding environments water.
    _______ use active transport to maintain osmotic pressure and keep the organisms fluid from becoming too diluted or concentrated.
    _______ are used to deal w/saltwater and metabolic processes.
    • Osmoconformer (passive isotonic balance)
    • Osmoregulators
    • Enzymes
  10. Mulitcellular organisms regulate water via
    ____ ____
    counter intake w. high amnt of ______.
    Sponges have _____ _____.
    • cell walls
    • dilute (urine)
    • contractile vacuols
  11. Multicellular in saltwater (problem is ____ ____ in, then out)
    -could be an Osmo______.
    -perform ____ _____ across external membranes.
    -____ amnts of ____ urine.
    -less ______ external barriers.
    -drink salt water using specialized glands to extract salt.
    • higher concentration
    • conformer
    • active transport
    • low, concentrated
    • permeable
  12. Strategies used by terrestrial multicellular organisms (6)
    • -just chill in a moist enviro
    • -have modified skin or external barrier
    • -have a water retention mechanism
    • -intake more water than is lost
    • -have a dormant stage
  13. If organism is in a moist environment, organisms with more permeable external barriers and limited abilities to use other strategies must position themselves in a moist environment with high moisture content that favor water retention is very important.
  14. a _____ _____/cuticle will lessen ______ in ivertebrates
    • hardened exoskeleton
    • dessication
  15. ____ _____ skin is characterized by water diffusing in and out of the body, skin must retain ______. Also, ____ is used for moisture and an additional barrier.
    • Semi-permeable
    • moisture
    • mucus
  16. ______ skin is characterized by have a barrier for diffusion, great overall protection, but requires internal _____ and _____ structures/mechanisms. Can live in a wide range of environments.
    • Impermeable
    • supporting and regulating
  17. Plants use a waxy ____ that covers exposed "green" epidermal tissues. Also use a thick bark layer as modified skin.
    cuticle
  18. _______(controlled guard cells) used to allow gas exchange, this causes _% of the water to leave through _______. Also closing them, will help control water loss on a short term basis.
    • Stomata
    • 90
    • transpiration
  19. Osmosis
    Opens and closes stomata (diffusion takes no energy)
  20. When stomata have ____ _____ ____ they bulge and stoma open, and low water content they close.
    high water content
  21. Transpiration
    • loss of H20 through leaves
    • increases with temp
    • stoma may close at higher temps
    • desert plants (only open stomata at night)
  22. Internal ____ ____ _____ keep water recycling w/in the organism. This involves a ___ ___ for efficient, targeted movement of fluids. Involve a filter/___ ___ mechanism that includes the vascular system, regulates chemical/hydraulic systems or a complex _____ _____.
    • water retention mechanisms
