1. Would you expect endangered species to be more frequently generalists or specialists? Explain your answer.
Generalists are animal species that can survive in a wide range of environmental conditions. They have a varied diet and can make use of diverse resources.
Specialists, on the other hand, are those animals that can only survive within an extremely narrow range of conditions. If taken out of their native habitats, they are likely to perish.
From the above argument, it can be concluded that endangered species are frequently specialists because they cannot continue to survive owing to the rapidly changing environmental conditions.
2. How does temperature affect water availability in an ecosystem?
Temperature fluctuation changes the state of water from liquid to solid or liquid to gas and vice versa. A temperature reading of below zero degrees Celsius causes water to freeze hence making it unavailable for consumption by living organisms.
At above zero degrees but below 100 degrees Celsius, temperature maintains water in its desired liquid state and therefore available for intake by living organism. In case the temperature gets above 100 degrees Celsius, water changes to gaseous state hence unavailable for consumption. Although such scenario is are very unlikely.
In hot desert eco-systems, the temperature gets extreme during the day causing water to evaporate. In case there is no subsequent precipitation, no water will be available for living organisms. In tropical rainforests, the evaporation rate is high but due to high level of rainfall, and there is plenty of water for living organisms.

Opportunities in peripheral areas such as craft, props and special effects, modelmaking, illustration and draughting, also exist.
