Transcript of Plant Adaptations

by: Kaitlynn Morris and Josh Walls Plant Adaptations Behavioral adaptation Structural adaptations Physiological adaptations Innate behavior Social behavior Learned behavior Homeostasis The Perennials go into a dormancy during the winter weather and come out during summer time. The flowers live for about 2 years. The plants do whatever it takes to stay in homeostasis so they don't die off. Animal dispersal Animals will come eat the fruit off of the trees in order for the animal to live. Reproduction The plants mate by the pollen coming into the a certain area (depending on the plant) to reproduce. Structural protection The flowers have a powder on them that keeps moths from eating away at them. Leaf structure types The leaves have different "patterns" in them for different ways to receive water and other nutrients. Root types Different types of roots are the resources for the plants to get water the taproot is the main root that receives the most nutrients. Seed types Seeds have different structures for different plants. For example, a tree would have a larger seed than a flower. Structures/methods to prevent water loss The roots in the plant hold water to prevent it from drying out and dying. Phototropism The plant leans more toward the light and even grows toward the light. Tropism Gravitropism The plant grows upwards against the pull of gravity. Heliotropism The Sunflower grows towards the sun when it is out. Thigmotropism The Ivy winds itself around solid objects such as a fence. Hydrotropism As you can see the roots of this plant are in the direction that the water is in. Methods of getting nutrients/water Plants receive water and other nutrients by rain and the sunlight and even the soil they are in. Behavioral protection The Venus Fly Trap not only protects itself from predators with its snapping "jaws" but it also feeds off of the animals trying to feed on it. Carnivorous plants The Venus Fly Trap eats at on the insects that set off the 3 hairs inside of the plant. Mimicry This plant looks a lot like another plant that we recognize. Only difference is that this plant is poisonous. Force dispersal During the fall the leaves on the trees are forced to fall. Gravity dispersal The pine cones will eventually fall off the tree from the gravity pull. Wind dispersal The wind will blow away all of the petals and spread them around to grow the flower. Water dispersal The lilly pad grows and thrives in water without dying from too much water. Seed dispersal The seeds in these leaves fall off the trees and spread around by the winds help.
