Animals adapt, or change, to stay alive. Adaptation can happen in an animal’s body or in the way it behaves. Some adaptations have taken place over many years, and others are caused by changing habitats due to the actions of people. This informative book shows animal adaptations due to changing climates, habitat changes, and opportunistic behaviors that help animals survive, such as the creation of new species. The coywolf, for example, is a new species. It is part coyote and part wolf, and has a much greater chance of survival than either of the animals that created it.
People have learned a lot from animals and copied many of their ways of surviving. This interesting book details many, often surprising, examples: bird flight and airplanes; defensive equipment such as helmets and turtle shells; strong spiderlike threads for surgeries; heating and cooling systems such as those created by termites; camouflage patterns on uniforms or vehicles in battle; and animal prints copied in fashions and decorations.
Animals are endangered in many kinds of habitats and for different reasons. This intriguing book looks at why some animals have become endangered due to changes in their habitat. Examples include animals in the Arctic that rely on ice for hunting face the challenge of melting ice due to climate change, the populations of animals born only on particular islands and nowhere else are shrinking, and many kinds of ocean animals are being poisoned by water pollution. Ideas are included to encourage readers to help protect these endangered animals and their habitats.
