Title Surviving the winter
Description
  • In this free course, Surviving the winter, we study one aspect of the fluctuating nature of an organisms environment. We consider how organisms living in a temperate climate, such as that in Britain, are adapted to cope with winter. You will see that there is much diversity of adaptations among organisms, with different species coping with the demands of a fluctuating environment in quite different ways. As cyclic variations are a widespread feature of environments, the range of adaptations to them is an important source of biological diversity.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/nature-environment/natural-history/surviving-the-winter/content-section-0" /> First published on Wed, 16 Mar 2016 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/nature-environment/natural-history/surviving-the-winter/content-section-0">Surviving the winter</a>.
