Adapt or Die

Competition and adaptions against predators

HideShow resource information

Adapt or Die

  • To survive, organisms take materials from their surroundings and other living organisms
  • Animals compete for food, territory and a mate. Only those well adapted to their environment are likely to surviv.
  • Plants compete with one another for light. Leaves are arranged to maximise the sunlight reaching them. Their root systems are large to maximise water nutrient intake.
  • Sharps thorns protect plants from grazing animals.
  • Plants and animal poisons and warning colours deter predtors.
  • To avoid being eaten, animals (includinginsects) are camoflaged or mimic more aggressive creatures.
