compare your observations above with a continental-continental convergent boundary a collisional boundary. How do the number, location, and type of volcanoes and earthquakes differ here compared to at a subduction zone? (To help simplify this a bit, here is an image that shows all of the information on the same page for the Himalayan plate boundary – where the Indian continent is colliding with Eurasia.) List and briefly describe three of the most important factors which determine the productivity of a terrestrial ecosystem.
– In light of these factors, give an example of a terrestrial ecosystem with high productivity and a terrestrial ecosystem with low productivity. Briefly explain why they have high/low productivity.
