Full solutions for Campbell Essential Biology with Physiology | 4th Edition
The force exerted by the weight of a column of air above a given point.
Extremely dense solar material caused by electrons being displaced inward toward an atom’s nucleus.
The quantity of water in a stream that passes a given point in a period of time.
A permanent stream that traverses a desert and has its source in well-watered areas outside the desert.
A crack in rock along which there is a distinct separation.
That portion of the shore lying between the normal high and low water marks; the intertidal zone.
A line drawn on a map connecting points of equal atmospheric pressure, usually corrected to sea level.
The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.
Plane of the ecliptic
The imaginary plane that connects Earth’s orbit with the celestial sphere.
As the result of paleomagnetic studies in the 1950s, researchers proposed that either the magnetic poles migrated greatly through time or the continents had gradually shifted their positions.
A mechanism that contributes to plate motion in which cool, dense oceanic crust sinks into the mantle and “pulls” the trailing lithosphere along.
Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.
The ratio of a substance’s weight to the weight of an equal volume of water.
A climate found north of the humid continental climate and south of the polar climate and characterized by bitterly cold winters and short, cool summers. Places within this climatic realm experience the highest annual temperature ranges on Earth.
A flat, benchlike structure produced by a stream, which was left elevated as the stream cut downward.
See Contact metamorphism.
A nourishment level in a food chain. Plant and algae producers constitute the lowest level, followed by herbivores and a series of carnivores at progressively higher levels.
The area above the water table where openings in soil, sediment, and rock are not saturated but filled mainly with air.
The electrons involved in the bonding process; the electrons occupying the highest-principal energy level of an atom.
A common term for a desert stream course that is typically dry except for brief periods immediately following a rain.
