Plants adaptation

  1. 1. Plant adaptations
  2. 2. Adaptions of plants refers to ways in which theplant has undergone changes to its genes as wellas physical appearance in order to survive in ahostile or competitive environment.
  3. 3. Cacti have evolvedspines to replace leavesto reduce transpirationand offer protection frompredators - most thornsand spines areprotection adaptations.
  4. 4. Some vines have evolved tendrils or suckers to beable to hoist their foliage up into areas of optimallight and avoid the completion on the ground.
  5. 5. The Venus Flytrap has evolved "traps" to catchinsects and supplement the nutrientrequirements lacking in its natural soil.
  6. 6. Jungle plants have evolved large deep greenleaf surfaces to maximise their exposure to thesun while on the jungle floor.
  7. 7. Many desert or arid plants have evolved silverleaves or leaves covered with reflective hairs inorder to reflect excessive heat.
  8. 8. The entire nature and mechanism of deciduousplants is a survival mechanism, brought aboutso that the plants can preserve resources andendure long periods of frost or snow.
  9. 9. Some desert/ arid regionplants like Protasparagushave developedunderground storageorgans to store waterwhen it is periodicallyavailable
