Adaptation of Animals and Their Survival in Local Environments
This tutorial explores animal adaptations by investigating the examples of animals commonly found in the natural environments of British Columbia. The discussion covers various ways in which plants and animals develop special features (adaptations) that allow them to survive in their environments, such as flight, echolocation, thermreceptors, thick fur, antlers, and others. A quiz and glossary are also provided.
