Narrator:  Listen to a lecture by a biology instructor.

Many people think of gorillas as dangerous killers.  One reason for this is that television and movies often show these animals this way.  But gorillas are really gentle animals.

The gorilla is a vegetarian.  It lives in the African rain forests where it finds the fruits and plants it needs to survive.  A large, wild gorilla might eat over 40 pounds of leaves and fruit in one day.

Unfortunately, these peaceful creatures are in danger of becoming extinct.  Each year, large areas of the rain forests are being cut down.  Because there is less and less food from these forests, the number of wild gorillas is becoming smaller and smaller.

Narrator:  Listen to part of a lecture in a wetlands ecology class.  The professor is talking about sanderlings. 
  
Urbanization and coastal development has dramatically reduced the beach habitat available for foraging shorebirds worldwide. This study tested the general hypothesis that recreational use of shorebird foraging areas adversely affects the foraging behavior of sanderlings Calidris alba. 

Observations conducted on two central California beaches from January through May and September through December of 1999 showed that number and activity of people significantly reduced the amount of time sanderlings spent foraging. 

Although the sample size was low, the most significant negative factor was the presence of free running dogs on the beach. The experimentally determined minimal approach distance did not vary significantly with the type of human activities tested. 

Based on these results, policy recommendations for minimizing the impact of human beach activities on foraging shorebirds include: (1) people maintain a minimum distance of 30 m from areas where shorebirds concentrate and (2) strict enforcement of leash laws.

Fig. 1

Section 1: Listening - TOEFL Practice Test Listening Part B




A total of 492 focal birds were observed, of which a sanderling was disturbed by passing humans on an average of one every 15 min with 96% of those sanderlings responding to humans at a distance of 30 m or less (Fig. 1). 

Sanderlings responded to human activity by either running (42%) or flying (58%). Within the 1-min sampling time, the disturbed sanderling generally moved once (58%), with 42% moving more than once due to human disturbance.

30.    
What hypothesis did this study test?
a. People maintain a minimum distance from where shorebirds congregate.
b. Recreational use of shorebird foraging areas conversely affects the foraging behavior of sanderlings.
c. Recreational use of shorebird foraging areas adversely affects the foraging behavior of sanderlings.
d. Recreational use of shorebird foraging areas adversely affects the foraging behavior of sanderlings. 42% of shorebirds move due to human disturbance.

31.    
What percent of responding sanderlings were disturbed by passing humans at a distance of 10 meters or less?
a.      More than 70 percent
b.      More than 80 percent
c.       Less than 60 percent
d.      Less than 0 percent

32.    
What are some environmentally sound results to come from this study?
a. Enforcement of leash laws would be effective.
b. Observe Calidris Alba daily.
c. People should maintain a minimum distance of 30 meters from shorebirds.
d. Coastal development has dramatically reduced the beach.

33.    
This experiment determined that the most significant negative factor to reduce the amount of time that sanderlings spent foraging was:
a.      Humans passing once every 15 minutes.
b.      Humans disturbing the sand
c.       Sanderlings running or flying
d.      Free running dogs

Narrator:  Listen to part of a lecture in a macroeconomics class. The professor will be taking about the indicators business cycle.  

Because the business cycle is related to aggregate economic activity, a popular indicator of the business cycle in the U.S. is the Gross Domestic Product or GDP.  

The financial media generally considers two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth to indicate a recession. Used as such, the GDP is a quick and simple indicator of economic contractions.  

However, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) weighs GDP relatively low as a primary business cycle indicator because GDP is subject to frequent revision and it is reported only on a quarterly basis (the business cycle is tracked on a monthly basis). 

The NBER relies primarily on indicators such as the following:
  •  employment
  • personal income
  • industrial production

Additionally, indicators such as manufacturing and trade sales are used as measures of economic activity.

38.    
What is the main topic of this lecture?
a.      Gross Domestic Product
b.      Indicators of the business cycle
c.       National Bureau of Economic Research
d.      Employment

39.    
Which of the following is used as a quick and simple indicator of economic contractions?
a.      Gross Domestic Product
b.      Employment
c.       Personal Income
d.      Industrial Production

40.    
What is used to indicate a recession?
a.      two consecutive quarters of negative growth
b.      two consecutive quarters of positive growth
c.       four nonconsecutive quarters of negative growth
d.      four nonconsecutive quarters of positive growth

41.    
What is an indicator that the NBER relies upon?   Please choose two answers.
a.      growth
b.      employment
c.       product movement
d.      personal income
