To survive, plants have developed adaptations to regulate temperature and water, and maximise the capture of sunlight. Some plants have even evolved to survive in extreme environments of hot deserts and Polar regions.
- Plants have adapted to survive in extreme environments.
- Key factors include regulating temperature, conserving water and catching sunlight.
- They have adapted to exist in hot arid habitats.
- They can even withstand freezing temperatures in the cold polar regions.
