Adaptations

Adaptations and Evolution
What is an adaptation?
The process of change by which an organism or a species becomes better suited to its environment
What is evolution?
The process of gradual change by which different organism are believed to have developed from earlier forms during the history of the earth
Swallow
Swallows are migratory birds
The spend the summer in Europe and the winter in Southern Africa
Clown Fish
Live in the Indian and Pacific Oceans - e.g. Great Barrier Reef
Live in deserts - extreme temperatures
Design a bird
Use the features you have been given to design a new type of bird for the habitats you have.

You will need to give reasons as to why you have used certain features
Adaptation
Cause
Streamlined body
Flying faster, efficient flying
Long pointed wings
Greater maneuverability, catching insects
on the wing
Migration
Find prey over winter
Adaptation
Cause
Resistant to anemone stings
Can live in anemone (mutualism) - gains protection
Round caudal (tail) fins
Make quick darting movements away from predators
Bleach themselves at night
Hide from predators
Adaptation
Cause
Spines instead of leaves
Reduces heat loss and stop predators eating it
Waxy skin

Seals in moisture, needs little rainfall
Shallow root system
Quick uptake of large amounts of water
Take in CO2 at night
Reduce water lost by evaporation by closing their pores in the day and opening them at night.
Adaptation
Cause
11cm of blubber under the skin
Insulate from the cold
Long, stiff hair between pads feet
Provide traction on the ice
Black skin under fur
Better heat retention rate
Small rounded ears
To conserve body warmth
Design a Future Animal
Think about how your habitat has changed due to humans. Think about what adaptations animals might evolve to better suit their changing habitat in the future.

You can design
any animal you want
for the habitat you have been given

Think of features that would help it survive and thrive in that environment

You must
label your design
and
explain it


Human Induced Habitat Change
Climate change, pollution, habitat destruction and hunting are a few of the ways humans are harming species
Habitat loss is the leading cause of threat to species worldwide
Write 5 reasons why your bird would struggle to survive in its new habitat and why it is not adapted to deal with these changes
What impact might this have on the species of that area?
