Interdependence and Adaptation
L.O To learn how organisms are adapted to survive in their environments. To learn how population sizes differ based on a variety of factors.
Above are some key terms, which will help you understand this topic.
Each organism is adapted to its environment. A key example of this, is how a polar bear is adapted to the cold environment it lives in
Adapting to hot climates is completely different, if we have a look at a camel as an example.
Plants also adapt to the extremely warm conditions. Plants like cacti have spines instead of leaves, which reduce surface area, so reduce water loss. The also have very large roots which help them get as much water as possible.
The stems in cacti have adapted in such a way that they can store water for long periods of time
