The standard view of this forum does not always work well with assistive technology. We also provide a simpler view, which still contains all features. Switch to simple view.

What kinds of physiological adaptations to fluctuating food supply have organisms in the Arctic regions made?

What kinds of behavioural adaptations do organisms in the Arctic regions have that specifically suit the ecosystems they are a part of?

How do emperor penguins’ breeding patterns fit the harsh ecosystem they are a part of?
