Plant Adaptations Activity Question 2



To advance to the next question, choose one of the photos below that best matches the plant adaptation described.

Drought resistors are those plants that have specialized parts that help them survive without much water. They are typically perennials (plants that live more than two years). Some of these plants have small leaves to reduce water loss through the stomata. Others have spines or hairs on their leaves to minimize evaporation.
