Transcript of Plant and Animal Adaptations

Animal Adaptations Animal and Plant Adaptations Kyle Williams
Cooper Little Behavioral Physiological Structural Camouflage The Arctic Fox changes colors during the seasons. it turns white during the winter and brown during the summer and spring to hide from predators. Mimicry This snake is trying to look like the venomous Eastern Coral Snake so it will not be eaten. Protection This beetle has developed a horn and a hard shell for protection during a fight. Homeostasis Migration These butterflies migrate south for the winter to keep warm. Negative Feedback This dog is maintaining its body temperature by panting. Dormancy Innate Behavior Instinct These little ones instinctively know to follow their mother wherever she goes. Social behavior Mating Rituals These swans are making the heart shape with their necks and heads to single mating. Schooling This school of fish is together to not get eaten and be more affective in getting their food. Taxis Conditioned Responses Estivation Physiological This hamster is sleeping and regaining energy for the days to come. Chemotaxis It is important for bacteria to find food. Territoriality This deer is marking its territory by scraping the tree with his antlers Learned Behavior Reflex Dogs raise their hackles when threatened or while threatening. hibernation Bears sleep all winter and wake in the spring. Behavioral Protection These bears have developed large teeth and huge claws to protect them in battle. Plant Adaptations Behavioral Structural Homeostasis Carnivorous Plants Behavioral Protection Reproduction Methods Methods of getting nutrients and water Tropism Phototropism Thigmotropism Hydrotropism Gravitropism Heliotropism Seed Dispersal Wind Dispersal Water Disperal Animal Dispersal Gravity Dispersal Force Dispersal Leaf Structure Types Seed Types Root Types Structural Protection Structures and Methods to Prevent Water Loss Mimicry The venus fly trap can eat insects with its large, sticky mouth and special hair triggers. A plant uses osmosis(pumps water through the veins) to help maintain homeostasis. Plants can use either sexual reproduction(right, producing seeds) or assexual(left, budding) The Silver Cassia has very thin leaves and reflective hairs that help it to protect itself from the desert climate. It can also, when in a drought, keep itself from losing very much water if it needs. Sunflowers can get nutrients and water from their roots(right) but also go through photosynthesis to get the energy they need(left). This plant is bending around a wooden pole to be able to grow and develop. This plant is growing toward the source of light, in order to capitalize on the amount of sun being captured. This oak tree's root has grew out towards the water in order to gain more water. These Jacob's trees have grown down toward the earth in a response to gravity. These seedlings have started to grow toward the sun in order to gain more sunlight. The dandelion uses the wind to spread its helicopter like seeds to other areas of the ecosystem. A coconut tree uses the water on this island to spread its seeds to other land masses. A pine cone tree uses gravity to disperse its seeds because of its height and width. This tree uses a bird to carry its berries away to other areas thereby dispersing its seeds. The Lupin has bursting pods that distribute their seeds when popped. A thorn bush has hundreds of thorns to protect itself from predators. The Splitrock is structurally built to make itself look like rocks, deterring predators from interest. Plants cane have a mass of roots to soak up the nutrients and water they need(left) or can have a series of length of roots at different levels to maximize water/nutrient absorbency. The seed types of plants can range from pods all the way to paper thin leave-like seeds depending on their environment. The gord plant uses its leaves to captrue more water(left), while these other plants use their leaves to adapt to their environments(right). Some plants use use huge water wells and few stomata to reduce water loss like the cactus, while others like the ivy have rolled leaves trapping water and reducing evaporation.
