How do an organism’s trait help it survive

  1. 1. - Every animal has its own environment where it lives in. Example Polar bears live in the Arctic. Snakes live in the desert. In order to survive in their environment, they have to behave in a special way.
  2. 2. Adaptation It‟s the behavior that helps a living thing “animal” to survive in its environment
  3. 3. Adaptation Camouflage Nocturnal Migrate Mimicry Hibernate
  4. 4. Camouflage “Animals hide by blending in their environment” -Many animals adapt to live in their environment by “camouflage”. -They hide & protect themselves from being eaten by other animals by blending in their environment . -Other animals use camouflage to help them not to be noticed so that they can hunt their preys easily.
  5. 5. Examples “Chameleons” - They blend in their environment by Camouflage to hide from their predators. (They color themselves with the same color of their environment)
  6. 6. “Polar bears” Polar bear‟s white fur helps it to blend with the ice & snow to make it easy for them to hunt the seal without being seen. -
  7. 7. “Snakes” - Snakes also adapt in their environment by camouflage, they hide from eagles by blending in the rocks & sand, and also to make easier for them to hunt their preys.
  8. 8. “Owls” -Owls also can adapt by camouflage inside the trees -It make it easier for them to hunt their preys without being seen.
  9. 9. “Lions” - Lions also blend in their environment using camouflage to hunt their preys without being seen.
  10. 10. Adaptation in the desert - Desert is a very tough environment to live in. - So plants & animals living in the desert should adapt to survive in it.
  11. 11. Adaptation of plants - Cactus & Mesquite trees are desert plants.  Have roots that spread far to absorb rainwater.  Have stems that store water.  Have spines to protect plants from being eaten by animals.
  12. 12. Adaptation of animals - Some animals are nocturnal they are active only at night “they sleep during the day” Examples Bats & Snakes
  13. 13. - Other desert animals adapt to the desert by having long ears to cool themselves in the hot weather. Examples Jack rabbits
  14. 14. Adaptation in the Forest Adaptation in the tropical rainforest Tropical rainforests get much rain all the year, this too much rain can damage the leaves, so there is a drip tip at the end of each leaf to help rain water to fall off quickly. -
  15. 15. Also in the tropical rainforest, there are many trees & leaves growing next to each others, so they can block „prevent” the sun light from reaching to the plants at the bottom. - So plants at the bottom adapt by having large leaves to catch the sun light.
  16. 16. Adaptation in the temperate forest - Temperate forests don‟t have much rain as the tropical rainforest, so trees in the temperate forest adapt by losing their leaves in the fall to save water.
  17. 17. Adaptation Of animals in the forests -Some animals imitate another in color or shape, like : stone fish. “It looks exactly like the stones of the Ocean, so it‟s very hard to notice it & that helps it to survive in its ecosystem” This is called: Mimicry
  18. 18. Other animals go to a very deep sleep during the winter, when they couldn‟t find their food, Like: Dormouse & Bears. - This is called: Hibernation
  19. 19. - Other animals like: Skunks spray a stinky smell when a predator comes close to them.
  20. 20. Adaptation in the Ocean Adaptation Of Plants in the Ocean Algae” Water plants” -Have leaf like structures to get sunlight to make food. - Have root like structure to attach itself to the ocean floor. -Balloon like structures called „air bladder‟ helps some algae float.
  21. 21. Adaptation Of animals in the Ocean - - Some animals move from their ecosystem to another ecosystem in the winter “ When the weather gets very cold” Example: Whales This is called: Migration
  22. 22. - Other Ocean animals have different ways of adaptation like: Angler fish “Has a growth above its head that lights up”
  23. 23. Adaptation in Wetlands Adaptation Of Plants in the wetland Mangrove trees have roots that spread out to attach well in the muddy soil.
  24. 24. Adaptation Of animals in the Wetland Walking catfish can use its fins to move from a dry land to a body of water.
