Adaptations to Cold Environments

Adaptions take place so that the organism can survive better in its environment

Most adaptions involve reducing heat loos to the cold environment

Anatomical Adaptations:

  • Having a thick layer of fur or blubber insulates the body
  • Having a large size and compact body shape - small surface area to volume ratio
  • This reduces heat loss through the skin
  • In cold environments
