  1. 1. PREPARED BY
  2. 2. Inherited Characteristics Why do tigers have stripes? Why are bullfrogs green on the back and white on the belly? Why do giraffes have such a long neck? Why do geese fly south for the winter? Why do waterlilies float? Why do some plants bear fruit? All of these questions deal with adaptations!!!
  3. 3. What are adaptations? Adaptations – an inherited characteristic that helps an organism to survive long enough to reproduce more successfully in its changing environment and can either be structural or behavioral.
  4. 4. ANIMAL ADAPTATIONS
  5. 5. Types of Adaptation  Anything that helps an organism survive in its environment is an adaptation.  It also refers to the ability of living things to adjust to different conditions within their environments. Structural adaptation  Protective coloration  Mimicry Behaviour adaptations  Migration  Hibernation
  6. 6. Structural adaptations A structural adaptation involves some part of an animal's body. Actual body parts or coloration that help an organism survive in their environment. EX: camouflage, mimicry, bent hind legs, sharp teeth and claws, body structures.
  7. 7. Protective Resemblance Coloration Mimicry A structural adaptation involves some part of an animal's body, such as the size or shape of the teeth, the animal's body covering, or the way the animal moves.
  8. 8. Behavioral Adaptations  Ways an organism act to help them survive in their environment. Behaviour adaptations include activities that help an animal survive. Behaviour adaptations can be learned or instinctive. It includes  Social behaviour  Behaviour for protection EX: Migration, hibernation, warning calls, mating dances, hunting in packs.

  10. 10. PLANT ADAPTATIONS
  11. 11. Structural Plant Adaptations 1. Structures - adaptations on the body: holdfasts, empty space for water storage, catch animals for minerals, tallness, heartiness, thorns, flexibility, floatation devices 2. Seeds – all seeds have adaptation to better enable it to survive long enough to plant itself and grow.
  12. 12. Plant Adaptations Protection – thorns, bad taste, poison, coloration, spikes Obtaining Food – All plants do photosynthesis and make glucose in their leaves. The larger the leaves the more Sun they can capture.
  13. 13. Plant Adaptations
  14. 14. All living things adapt is a characteristic of life. All 6 kingdoms adapt. Animals are not the only organisms to adapt. Plants also adapt in various ways to survive.
