  • Adaptations
    • Cactus
      • Small surface area to reduce heat loss
        • Thick, waxy surface to reduce water loss
          • Spines to reduce water loss and other organisms getting their water
            • Stomata open at night to reduce water loss
    • Polar Bear
      • Small surface area to reduce heat loss
        • Large amount of fat beneath the skin for insulation
          • transparent fur for camoflague
            • Large Feet to spread weight on the ice
              • Powerful swimmers so they can catch their food.
    • Camel
      • Large surface area to reduce heat loss
        • Body fat stored in hump to reduce heat loss.
          • Sandy brown coat for camoflage
    • Fish
      • Streamlined to shape to travel quickly through water
        • Gills that obtain dissolved oxygen from the water
          • Gills have large surface area which increases the area over which oxygen can be absorbed
