    can u explain how u answer the seaweed question.
    oh my..i like 2 eat seaweed but ihate it now
    yeah i saw the word seaweed and was like noooooooooo but then read it and realised i liked it! well the green seaweed cant absorb green light, so therefore would be found where the other light wavelengths can easily reach it - and has higher photosynthesis rates in these wavelengths. the red sea weed is the same - photosynthesis can happen best in green or other light (not red) so is adapted to live in a place where there is lots of green and other light wavelengths. upper shore = cliffs/top of beach, while lower shore = sea, deeper water. sorry i cant exactly remember the exact info they gave in the exam! tried to forget haha

    Edit: why the neg rep? i explained what i could remember of how i answered it... thats what i was asked!

    Im not confused, i swear there was a question about transect.... it asked us how you would determine the species density (which is species distribution/abundance) in two different plant species.

    I described using a line quadrat...

    i swear, there was a question...

    i don't... think... i imagined writing answer to that question... or did i...
    i swear im not deluded...
    ok well either, you're right and myself and everyone else I've seen on this thread missed the question or had selective amnesia, or maybe you read the question wrong or are getting mixed up with a past paper you did the day/morning before or something.

    I'm not having a go but I've seen several people on this thread who don't recognise q3 and unless it was hidden and the rest of us happened to miss it, it wasn't there, so I'm assuming that that question wasn't on the paper.

    what did people put for the question about the name of the layer of skin that protects us or something? i remember one of the choices was epidermis, and a couple of them i've never even heard of something like schlerechyma, which was the one i ticked but ive just googled it and its something to do with plants!
    Keratin is a protein in the epidermis/skin. I did an Edexcel past paper from years ago that wasn't for this spec but it had the question and I did it a couple days ago! So it was def epidermis. I Didn't recognise a couple of the words in the options they gave you.

    1). Is it really that difficult to speak properly?

    2). I don't understand your first 3 points and on your 4th point, you are just totally wrong on everything, apart from that yes the temperature does decrease the furthur from the ecuator... Would help you, but I can't.

    Oh crap

    I believe i but temp and oxygen concentration, or i put temp and ATP stores within cell. Now im not sure if the ATP stores are environmental =| heres to hoping.

    ATP stores are probably not environmental.

    What exactly was the seaweed question about?
