Some animals can survive extreme conditions that are beyond the limits of their normal metabolic activity. Adaptations to achieve this include dormancy and migration.
Dormancy is part of some organism's life cycle to allow increased chances of what?
The type of dormancy where an organism enters into dormancy before the onset of adverse conditions is called what?
The type of dormancy where an organism enters dormancy after the onset of adverse condition occur is called what?
Which description best fits what happens to an organism during dormancy?
Heart rate and metabolic activity increases to keep the organism warm
Heart rate and metabolic activity stay the same to keep the animals vital organs working
Heart rate and metabolic activity decreases to conserve energy
The type of dormancy where an organism survives during winter and low temperatures is called what?
Which of these is an example of consequential dormancy that is associated with surviving high temperatures and drought conditions?
Which process is used to reduce the metabolic activity of an animal for a short period?
During the seasons, some organisms are able to relocate to a different environment. Which word describes this behaviour?
Migratory behaviour can be what?
Innate and learned
Long-distance migration can be studied using tracking technology. Which description best fits this way of studying migration?
An individual marker is placed on an animal
A transmitter is attached to the animal and a receiver picks up the signal
A metal leg band tag is attached to the animal and the animal is recaptured to gather data about the migration
