How Do You Survive

  1. 1. Lesson objective To use information to suggest how organisms are adapted to their environment
  2. 2. What do you think is the purpose of this odd looking feature of the star nosed mole?
  3. 3. Adaptations B1b 5.5 Why are rhododendrons a problem?
  4. 4. Rhododendrons have reached BeddGelert! This beautiful Welsh valley is popular with climbers, walkers and families out for a day in the countryside. (BeddGelert also has Snowdonia’s best ice cream shop!).
  5. 5. Rhododendrons are not native plants in the UK but they are particularly well adapted to harvest light for photosynthesis. This makes them very successful - and that’s the problem. Click here to play video
  6. 6. By clearing the rhododendrons, the seedlings of the woodland trees get a chance to grow and the natural beauty of the valley can be conserved for generations to come.

Fully grown trees have leaves that are borne above the rhododendron canopy. </li></ul>
