What are adaptations?

Adaptations help organisms survive in their ecological habitats or niches. There are 3 types of adaptations: physiological, physical or anatomical, and behavioral.

  • Physiological adaptations are adaptions that help with abilities, such as making venom or temperature regulations.
  • Physical, or anatomical, adaptations are physical features on organisms.
  • Behavioral adaptations are adaptations that can be inherited or learned.
