Summary Introduction

To match: The each term with their suitable description.

Explanation

Area effect - c. more species on large islands than small ones at same distance from the source of colonists.

The equilibrium model of island biogeography expects the species number that is present in an island mainly based upon the distance effect and area effect. The area effect explains about the species richness and also reveals that the larger islands will possess greater species than the smaller islands due to certain reasons

Pioneer species- b. first species established in a new habitat

The species that can colonize a new environment is called as pioneer species. For example- lichens and mosses have a very small lifecycle which can tolerate a wide range of changes in the temperature, sunlight, and little or no soil.

Indicator species- d. species that is especially sensitive to changes in the environment

The species that is particularly sensitive to the physical disturbances in their habitat is called as indicator species. For example- lichens that are sensitive of the air pollution can act as the air quality indicators...
