Plant Adaptations Passion Flower
Types of Adaptations Structural adaptations are the way something is built or made. Behavioral adaptations are the way something acts naturally or by instinct.
Adaptations to get foodLeaves and stems absorb energy from the sun.
Adaptations to get foodPlants lean or grow towards the sun. Roots grow down into soil. Vines climb up trees to catch sunlight.
Adaptations to get special nutrientPlants like the Venus fly trap, trap insects for vitamins (nitrogen).
Adaptations to get water and nutrientsRoots soak up water and nutrients from soil.
Adaptations to get water and nutrientsDesert flowers can stay dormant for months, only coming to life when it rains. These plants have a short life cycle.
Adaptations to protect waterHairy leaves shade the plant Leaves that turn away from the sun Extensive roots quickly absorb water
Adaptations to protect waterWaxy coating Small leaves or no leaves Leaves that turn away from the sun
Adaptations for ReproductionBrightly colored flowers with nectar attract pollinators such as birds, bees and insects.
Adaptations for ReproductionSweet fruit attracts animals that spread seeds far away. Some seeds are shaped to catch the wind.
Adaptations for DefenseSpines and thorns protect plants from browsers.
Adaptations for DefensePoison Ivy and Poison oak have toxins that give browsers a painful itchy rash.
Plant Adaptations for different Biomes
Desert Adaptations Small leaves or spines on desert plants conserve water. Thick waxy skin holds in water. Roots near the soils surface soak up rain water quickly before it evaporates.
Grassland AdaptationsNarrow leaves lose less water than broad leaves. Flexible stems bend in the wind.
Grasses grow from near their base, not from tipDeep roots help plants survive prairie fires and grazers.
Tundra Adaptations Small plants grow close to the ground for warmth.Dark colored flowers absorb heat from the sun. Fuzzy stems provide protection from wind.
Rainforest AdaptationsSmooth, slippery bark keeps vines from killing trees. Slide shaped leaves lets rain run off so fungus doesn’t grow on plants.
Drip tips and waxy surfaces quickly shed water
Deciduous Forest AdaptationsThick bark protects trees Dropping leaves in winter conserves water and nutrients during cold winters.
Wildflowers grow on forest floor early in the spring before trees leaf-out and shade the forest floor
Coniferous Forest Needle-like leaves sheds snowWaxy coating reduces water loss
Water Adaptations Flexible stems move with water currents.Floating seeds spread offspring. Roots as anchors rather than water collector
PLANT ADAPTATIONS Talk about the plant parts you see in front of you
Habitats and Adaptations
Science Bellringer Identify two traits that an offspring can inherit from a parent plant.
Plant Life Cycle How living things grow, live, and die.
Structure and Function
Life Support for Plants
Plant Adaptations What does Adaptation mean
Forest are ecosystems in which many trees grow..
How do Plant Features Help Plants?
Biome Adaptations & Niches
All animals and plants have adaptations that help them survive in their environment. Examples of Plant Adaptations: Support/food storage: Above ground.
PLANTS ARE PRODUCERS PLANTS CAPTURE ENERGY FROM THE SUN. –The sun’s heat & light provide the energy almost all organisms need to live. –Light energy must.
Plant Adaptations. Pine Needles Pine Needle Adaptations Won’t die in the snow Conserves water High surface area.
PLANT AND ANIMAL ADAPTATIONS. PLANTS: CONE SHAPED TREES ARE ABLE TO SHED SNOW ANIMALS: SOME FLY SOUTH FOR THE WINTER OR CHANGE THE COLOR OF THIR FUR COLD.
