Answers
1. Grasslands in Africa? Not sure how specific my answer should be...
2. Mag: Harmful chemicals increase in concentration as one moves up a food chain
Accum: Harmful chemicals build up in a single organism
Turb: Organisms loosen the soil
Rem: Organisms are used to clean up the environment
3. Mollisols have a dark, fertile surface horizon
4. a) Fresh: heart stops, oxygen depleted, discoloration starts
b) Bloat: Anaerobic organisms give off gases, body looks bloated
c) Active decay: Most decomposition, fluids purged from body
d) Advanced decay: decomposition slows down, less nutrients
e) Dry/remains: only dry skin and bones
