ABC Adaptations Project
By: Danielle Konlian
A is for Adaptions
Adaptions happen when organisms change their habits in order to survive and reproduce.
B is for Behaviors
Behaviors, body parts and body coverings change when an animal adapts. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4b/Orientalischer_Süßlippfisch.jpg
C is for Climate Change
Climate change is one of the causes of frogs dying off.
D is for DNA
DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) determines who we are! If there is a mistake in coping the DNA, then it creates a mutation.
E is for Eco-friendly
An Eco- friendly tip is to not overuse your resources; like water and electricity.
F is for Frogs
Frogs are in trouble because of habitat destruction and over harvesting. https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT5fbRRUxO4DZNtHg6Hnd8dF3HmAOyuEdh38Nboe7VaWmUAdUPa G is for Genes
Genes and DNA determine an organism’s traits.
H is for Humans
Humans use frogs for medicine and research purposes.
I is for Ice survival
Ice survival is critical to keeping some animals alive in the winter.
J is for Jaguars
Jaguars have adapted to their environment by developing spots to confuse their predators.

Keeping our Earth clean is very important for other species’ survival.
L is for Lowering the use of water
Lowering the use of water and electricity can lower our ecological footprint.
M is for Mutation
Mutations are caused by a change in a gene or chromosome.
N is for Nocturnal
Nocturnal animals sleep during the day and hunt during the night. This is an adaptation.

Omnivores are animals that have adapted to their surroundings by eating both plants and animals.
P is for Polar bears
Polar bears are white because of genetic variation.
Q is for Quills
Quills on a porcupine are used as defense against predators to help them survive.
R is for Retnoids
Retnoids are messing up the normal way tadpoles mature into frogs, resulting in a genetic variation.
S is for Size
The size of an animal can help them survive.
T is for Trematode
Trematode could be causing amphibian abnormalities.

Ultraviolet rays can destroy DNA resulting in genetic mutation in some animals.
V is for Very brightly colored animals
Very brightly colored animals are less likely to survive because they cannot camouflage with their habitat.
W is for Webbed Feet and Wings
Webbed feet and wings are...
