European Biomes


The UK receives a lot of precipitation. Because of this, there are some plants in the UK that have adapted to life in water. One of these is the Water-Starwort. This plant lives completely submerged in water. Rabbits, who are preyed on my foxes in the UK, have adapted to run faster, and have developed an amazing sense of hearing to avoid them. Also, when the rabbit runs away, it flashes its white tail to warn other rabbits of danger.

Black spruce thrive in Norway. This tree has adapted to the extreme cold by growing layered twigs, waxy pine needles, and thick bark. Arctic foxes have also adapted to the bitter cold in Norway. These foxes have developed a very thick coat to keep them warm. They also have a coat that turns brown in the summer, and white in the winter to help them remain camouflaged all year.
