In Chapter 13, 14 and 15 we explore the diversity of organisms, including a looks into adaptations that enable them to thrive in their respective habitats. Respond to the following two prompts relating to these three chapters:
- Compare and contrast reproduction methods in TWO (2) of the following groups – in what ways are they similar and different?
- Seedless plants
- In order to transition to a life on land, certain adaptations were required to help organisms deal with a world where they weren’t surrounded by water. Water helps organisms to reproduce easily (by just releasing egg and sperm into the water) and keeps the organism hydrated. Provide examples of adaptations that made it possible for two (2) types of organisms to a) reproduce effectively and b) prevent desiccation (drying out). You may select any two terrestrial (land) organisms that strike your fancy.
