Summary Introduction

To match: The each term with their suitable description.

Explanation

Ozone: f. good up high, bad near by.

The presence of ozone layer in the uppermost atmosphere protects against incoming UV radiation from the sun. Near the ground, there is naturally little amount of ozone present that is considered as pollutant. Ozone irritates the eyes and respiratory tracts of humans and other animals. Plant growth is also affected by ozone.

Biodiversity: h. genetic, species, and ecosystem diversity.

Biodiversity or biological diversity is the presence of variety of life on the Earth over different levels of biological organization. It represents the variability within and among all ecosystems, species, and genetic materials.

Acid rain: d. coal-burning is a major cause.

The common pollutants of air are sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which cause acid rain. Sulfur dioxide is released primarily due to the coal-burning process of the power plants. In dry weather, airborne sulfur and nitrogen oxide coat dust particles. When these pollutant particles combine with water, they become wet acid deposition. Then, it falls down as acid precipitation, known as acid rain.

Endemic species: c. evolved in one region and remains there.

Endemic species are evolved in one place and are present in that habitat...
