User: Select the statement that is false. Ocean currents move cold water from the equator toward the poles. Ocean currents generally flow clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere. Ocean circulation patterns and the water cycle are physical processes. Ocean circulation patterns are caused by their interaction with the atmosphere, pressure, and the earth's rotation.

Weegy: Ocean currents generally flow clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere.

1 Answer/Comment
Bitter is the taste that may be detected at very low concentration.

Since a large number of natural bitter compounds are known to be toxic, the ability to detect bitter-tasting, toxic compounds at low thresholds is considered to provide an important protective function.

Select all that apply. An ecosystem could probably survive without _____. carnivores producers Sun water herbivores climate soil decomposers
Weegy: All of the above. Here is why: An ecosystem, a contraction of "ecological" and "system", refers to the collection of components and processes that comprise, and govern the behavior of, some defined subset of the biosphere. [ [ The term is generally understood to refer to all biotic and abiotic components, and their interactions with each other, in some defined area, with no conceptual restrictions on how large or small that area can be. To many, ecosystems, like any other system, are governed by the rules of systems science and cybernetics, as applied specifically to collections of organisms and relevant abiotic components. To others, ecosystems are primarily governed by stochastic events, the reactions they provoke on non-living materials and the corresponding responses by organisms. So by definition, an ecosystem could have only abiotic components.
