Which blood samples can be tested with blood type b+ reccesive?

1. naiomireyes74p2aybs says:

The correct answer is (C) a and b

Explanation:

As we know that tree roots hold the earth in place, so if the number of trees on earth continues to decrease significantly, erosion could occur without the tree roots to hold the earth in place. Similarly trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen into the atmosphere, so if the number of trees on earth continues to decrease significantly, less oxygen released into the atmosphere and more CO2 buildup.

Lack of what their main source like Oxygen, Air causing decreases.

Well fires can kill a bunch and lot of people building new home and hotels and etc.

Hope this helped ^_^

The answer is a.less oxygen released into the atmosphere and more co2buildup; erosion could occur without the tree roots to hold the earth in place; loss of habitat of many animals and diversity could decrease.

Through the process of photosynthesis, trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen into the atmosphere. If the number of trees on earth continues to decrease significantly, less oxygen released into the atmosphere and more co2 buildup.
Tree roots hold the earth in place, so if the number of trees on earth continues to decrease significantly, erosion could occur without the tree roots to hold the earth in place.
Trees represent habitat for many animals, therefore if the number of trees on earth continues to decrease significantly, loss of habitat of many animals will occur and diversity could decrease.

Trees such as those in deciduous forest are very important to the environment because they are primary shelter for the animals living in the forest. Animals will start migrating towards the residential areas as their shelter will be lost.There are many species of plants that can be used as a  source of medicine for the prevention and cure of diseases.  Trees are a great source of oxygen for environment. Some trees of deciduous forest grow near rivers and prevents soil erosion by binding the soil to the roots of the plant. Trees such as cottonwood, mountain ash,fruit trees are commercially important. All of the above advantages of the trees will be lost if there will be a significant decrease in the number of trees.

c.

a and b

C. a and b
Both the answers are likely to occur.

8. Ruthsybel9754 says:

People would lose oxygen and animals would go extinct.

9. samueldfhung says:

Trees play vital roles in the production of oxygen as well as the fixation of carbon from $CO_{2}$. As trees use nitrogen, phosphorus and water as nutrients for growth, their diminishing numbers would change the balance between these three elements significantly.

Thus, during rains, the water level will rise much faster and higher in the absence of trees. These could possibly lead to increasing cases of devastating landslides.

Option (c) is the correct answer.

Explanation:

Trees are the main source of generation of oxygen into the atmosphere. They provide us fresh air to breathe and consume the required amount of carbon dioxide present in the atmosphere.

So, if we cut large number of trees then there will be decrease in oxygen content into the atmosphere. Trees also act as habitat for many animals and birds. Cutting of trees will also cause loss of habitat and leading to erosion of soil as plant roots won't be available to hold the earth in place.

A disturbance in water cycle will also occur due to excessive cutting of trees.

Hence, we can conclude that the following statements are true.

less oxygen released into the atmosphere and more CO2 buildup; erosion could occur without the tree roots to hold the earth in place; loss of habitat of many animals and diversity could decrease.balance of nitrogen and phosphorus in the ecosystem and the movement of water through the ecosystem could be thrown out of balance.

Thus, we can conclude that option (c) correct.
