  1. An animal or plant (particularly insect- and invertebrate- eating plants) that requires a staple diet consisting mainly or exclusively of animal tissue through predation or scavenging.
  2. The structural, functional and biological unit of all organisms.
  3. The green pigment found in the chloroplasts of higher plants and in cells of photosynthetic mircroorganims (e.g. photosythetic bacteria), which is primarily involved in absorbing light energy for photosynthesis.
  4. The feeling and removal of all trees from a given tract of forest
    Clear Cutting
  5. A type of symbiosis, specifically, a biological relationship in which one species benefits from an interaction, while the host species is neither positively nor negatively affected to any tangible degree.
  6. An organism that generally obtains food by feeding on other organisms or organic matter due to lack of the ability to manufacture own food from inorganic sources; a heterotroph
  7. A wide, gentle incline from an ocean bottom to a continental slope
    Continental Rise
  8. A submerged border of a continent that slopes gradually and extends to a point of steeper descent to the ocean bottom
    Continental Shelf
  9. The sloping region between a continental shelf and a continental rise
    Continental Slope
  10. Is the transfer of heat by the actual movement of the warmed matter
  11. Locations where lithosperic plates are moving towards one another. The plate collisions that occur in these areas can produce earthquakes, volcanic activity and crustal deformation
    Convergent Boundary
  12. A natural stream of water normally smaller than and often tributary to a river
  13. Is one of the four main bases found in DNA and RNA
  14. To produce (an organism) by maating of individuals of different breeds, varieties, or species; hybridize
  15. A body of water moving in a certain direction and caused by wind and density differences in water. The effects of a current are modified by water depth, underwater topography, basin shape, land masses, and deflection from the earth's rotation
