Klebe Seth Section #5 Section day: T 5:00 P.M. Assignment #5: Biogeographic Processes A1. A: Solar B: Chemical Bond C: Net Primary Production D: Sink E: Source A2. NPP= Photosynthesis – Respiration so the NPP for 1 day of UCSB plants is 60kg C-30kg C = 30kg C. Since this will occur for 100 days, the NPP for the entire time is 3,000kg C which is a sink because the NPP is positive. A3. NPP= 500mg C – (250mg C + 300mg C) = -50mg C. This represents a source because the NPP is negative. Diagram: B1. A habitat is the physical environment that contains an organism’s activity whereas an ecological niche explains how organisms get their energy and compete with other species in its environment. The habitat is a literal environment while the Niche is describing more of the events that go on in terms of resource competition. B2.
