Summary
What does the term 'survival of the fittest' mean and why is life on Earth a battle? Find out in Extreme Adaptations and explore how animals and plants have changed by adaptation to carve out a life in a deadly world. Find out why the black heron uses an umbrella, which animal 'plays dead' and the many ways animals have adapted to keep safe, survive winter, survive the heat and much more. Discover what adaptation means, why it is necessary for survival and how without evolution life on Earth could not continue. The Savage Nature series explores life science and life on Earth at its most extreme, from the fight for survival from birth to death through to the way that organisms have adapted to survive in extreme habitats. The series offers high-interest, engaging information, fascinating fact boxes and an in-depth exploration of the most exciting aspects of life science. Ages 9+
