Study Notes

  • Animals can survive in various environments due to adaptations, which are physical, behavioral, or physiological features that aid their survival.
  • Adaptations have developed through evolution, allowing animals to obtain food, stay safe, build homes, withstand weather, and attract mates.
  • Small desert rodents illustrate adaptations: nocturnal behavior, dark-adapted eyes, and water-retaining metabolism.
  • Adaptations include: bird beaks' shapes, finger shapes, fur color, fur thickness, and nose/ear shapes.
  • Mimicry adaptation involves an organism taking on the appearance of another to blend in or deceive, such as the hawkmoth imitating a dead leaf.
  • Biomes are defined by similar climatic conditions, encompassing communities of plants, animals, and soil organisms. (Also referred to as ecosystems.)
