Adaptation PP - Isabel L Presentation Transcript

  • 1.  Type of AdaptationStructural – relating to an organism’s shape, size or structure What are the Adaptation3cm thick layer of fat. Waterproof feathers. Shape of body. Shape of wings. Webbedfeet. How does the Adaptation help it to survive- The 3cm thick layer of blubber (fat)- Waterproof feathers keep them warm in winter.- Webbed feet for powerful swimming.- Their bodies are streamlined to reduce drag in water.- Their wings are shaped like flippers so let them swim at speed of 15 mph.- Keep high body temperature to stay active.- Dark coloured feathers absorb heat from the sun, which helps to keep them warm.
  • 2.  Type of AdaptationBehavioural – relating to how an organism acts What are the AdaptationRiver Red Gum tree’s are able to survive in very tough environments. They are one ofthe only tree’s that can survive in floods for a long time. How does the Adaptation help it to survive- The River Red Gum Tree is an opportunistic water user, and transpires waterwhenever it is available.- Internal oxygen transport and the ability to take oxygen in through the trunk. Veryhandy when the roots are flooded and still need oxygen to respire.- Development of floating root masses to extract oxygen from the air during floods.- Specialised root tissue to extract water from sandy lenses in the (clay) soil during drytimes
