Decomposers break down the dead plants and animals in an ecosystem. They prevent the build-up of wastes and allow plants to receive nutrients.

It's either C or D since they are allowing nutrients to keep passing through everything...maybe C, since plants take in carbon dioxide?

ok are you sure because this is the last test of the year and im trying to get an A
kobeni-chan
  • kobeni-chan
I believe so. There seems to be more things on google about decomposers cycling carbon than oxygen. I would pick C.

anonymous
  • anonymous
A) The birth rate is greater than the death rate. B) The birth rate is less than the death rate. C) The birth rate is equal to the death rate. D) The birth rate and the death rate are zero.

Carrying capacity is the population being maintained with enough food and necessary resources. So it'll be C. since the birth rate and the death rate would be balanced.

Umm not completely sure on this one. Though I do know that water, nitrogen, and carbon have their own cycles, so I would say to pick nitrogen.
