During and immediately after periods of drought, algae populations in ponds and streams are so severely impacted that populations that rely on algae, such as insect larvae, plummet, and subsequently, so do insect larvae dependent populations, such as minnows, and frogs.
Which one of the following can be properly drawn from the information above?
A) The impact from drought extends well beyond ponds and streams.
B) A species’ reliance on rain-dependent populations can lead to its extinction.
C) Insect larvae dependent populations impacted by periods of drought revive with subsequent rain.
D) During periods of drought, the populations of species that depend on pond algae tend to contract.
E) If minnows and frogs fail to prosper, it is attributable to a decline in the population of algae in ponds and streams.
