Some adaptations include trees with thin, smooth bark. They don't need thick bark to keep them from drying out because the rainforest is so wet. Trees often have buttresses, large branching ridges near the base, for support because their roots are often shallow and they grow tall to reach the sunlight.

Many plants in the rainforests have adapted leaf shapes that help water drip off the plant to avoid too much moisture, which might make bacteria and fungus grow.


Orchids have adapted to sunlight and no wet soil

The rainforest has a plant growth type which is vertical, meaning trees grow to great heights. Some plants (orchids, are a good example), have adapted to this by being arboreal (that is, they attach to trees in order to get more sunlight, since the tall trees do not allow much sunlight to reach the ground).

Adaptations are special features that allow a plant or animal to survive in a particular location. Animals that are adapted to life in the rainforest must be able to handle a lot of rainfall in an area with a tremendous amount of plants. They should be able to eat foods no other animal could and they are adapted to handle very warm temperatures.

Three adaptations that allow plants to survive on land would be chloroplasts, roots and cell walls. Roots allows the plant to be stable and collect water while cell walls give the plant its structure and chloroplasts allow the plant to use photosynthesis.

vacuoles, cell wall & chloroplast are found in plant cells but not in animal cells. But centriole is an organelle found in animal cells but not in plant cell.

Three organelles only found in plant cells are cell wall and chloroplast there are only two only found in plant cells.

The three polysaccharides are Starch, Glycogen, and Cellulose. Cellulose found in plant cell walls, Glycogen found in animals and Starch found in plants.

Cellulose, hemicellulose, and Pectin. These are found in plant cell wall and help give the plant structure.

im not sure.i think so because it doesnt matter which environment.

the three type of adaptations are the structural,behavioural and functional adaptaion

Three parts that are not found in the animal cell are large central vacuole, cell wall, and chloroplast.

Growing deep into the soil, being flexible but tough, and having thin and needle-like leaves are the adaptations that might help the plant survive in a windy environment.

Some animals found in the tropical rainforest are tree snails, rhinoceros beetles, macaws, leafcutter ants, three-toed sloth, poison arrow frogs, anaconda, armadillos, and different types of butterflies. The tropical rainforest has millions of insect species, making them the largest group of animals in this type of biome.

RNA is found in both plant and animal cells. It has three forms - mRNA, tRNA and rRNA - which are all involved in the process of protein synthesis.
