  • Plants:
    • Conserve moisture
      • Lose leaves- slows growth, prevents loss of moisture
      • store water in stems
  • Animals:
    • Reducing water loss- specialized snouts, waxy body coatings
    • Regulate body temperature
      • Burrows
      • Estivate (stopping activity)
human impacts
Human Impacts
  • Development
    • Destroys animals habitat
    • Introduces non-native plants
