An Introduction to Adaption
All living things must adapt in order to survive in their environment. The species that is more capable of adaptation will live longer in this environment, have more offspring and pass on their genotype as much as possible. See evolution. We are going to look at an example from the plant and animal kingdoms that demonstrates evolved adapting to extreme environments in order to cope.
First we shall look at how a plant adapts to thriving in a very warm climate.
These are just some of the many adaptations it has made to help it survive:
The Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus)
Now we shall have a look at how an animal adapts to living in a cold environment.
