|Adaptation of Trees and Shrubs to Survive in Local Environments|
This tutorial explores the adaptation of plants in their local environments by investigating examples of species native to British Columbia. Examples include adaptations such as large size (Sequoia trees), long life (bristlecone pines), fast growth (aspens), and thick bark (Ponderosa pines). There is an explanation of how plants absorb carbon dioxide give off oxygen, and draw nutrients and water from the soil, and a discussion of the numerous adaptations of huckleberry plants and their importance as a food source for many animals in the forests of British Columbia. A quiz and glossary are included.
