Can we find adaptions in nature?

Invasive Species

  • Nonnative
  • takes over.
  • Ex: Kudzoo grass.

Vascular Plants

  • contain xylem and phloem
  • xylem carries water up
  • phloem carries water and nutrients both ways
  • Mostly larger plants

Nonvascular Plants

  • smaller than vascular
  • get water through capillary action
  • Ex. mosses, hornworts, liverworts


  • Flowering plant
  • Stamen=pollen
  • pistil=egg


  • conifers/evergreen
  • reproduce with cones (naked seeds)
  • ex. Pine, spruce
