Expert Answer:

The presence of specific body features which enable a plant or an animal to survive in a particular habitat is called adaptation.

Types of adaptation:

  • Structural adaptation: Refers to the physical changes in terms of shape and size of the organism’s body. Example: Ducks have webbed feet which enable them to wade easily through water.
  • Behavioural adaptation: Refers to the behavioural changes shown by an organism. Example: Penguins move in large groups to protect themselves from predators.
