  • Adaptions to the environment- evolution
    • being adapted increases the risk of survival and reproducting successfully
    • adaptions develop because of evolution and natural selection
    • each generation, the best adapted are most likely to survive and reproduce passing adaptions onto their offspring
    • Behavioral
      • the ways an organism acts that increase the chance of survival
      • eg. a possum may play dead to avoid being threatened
      • some scorpians dance
    • pyschiological
      • proccess inside an organisms body that increase the chance of survival
      • eg. brown bears hibernate to lower their metabloism and conserve energy
    • Anatomical
      • structural features of an organisms body that increase the chance of survival
      • eg. otters have streamlined bodies to help them glide through water, escaping from predators
