Selection (2 points maximum) • Sickle cell condition protects against or resists malaria. • Changed hemoglobin leads to oxygen-deprivation minimizing malarial infection. • Heterozygotes maintain a reproductive advantage/success.

(a) Explain the difference between gross and net primary productivity. (2 points) • • Definition of gross primary productivity (1 point) o Total energy converted/transformed by photosynthesis o Total organic molecules produced or carbon fixed Definition of net primary productivity (1 point) o The biomass or total energy converted minus the amount used by the producers for cell respiration o The amount of energy or organic molecules left for the next trophic level o The energy that is available to organisms that eat primary producers o Gross primary productivity minus respiration (b) Describe a method to determine net and gross primary productivity in a freshwater pond over a 24-hour period. (1 point for each bullet; 4 points maximum) Measurement described • Dissolved oxygen production or increase in biomass, or carbon dioxide uptake Instrument/technique used to collect the data • Winkler or C14 or oxygen probe Methodology/design described • Initial/baseline comparison • Light and dark bottle comparison Data analysis • Light minus initial = net productivity • Initial minus dark = respiration • Light minus...
