What is one organism that senses and responds to its environment?

Almost any organism - that is, living thing - will respond to its environment. An example is the rabbit - if there is no grass in its environment, instead of starving it will eat tree bark and roots. If the environment is too different to what that organism is adapted to, it will not be able to function there and it will die, for example introducing a freshwater fish into salt water, or a mango tree to Antarctica.
