The information shows how important habitats are in creating a climate that allows for the survival and adaptation of both plants and animals. As illustrated in the video, these animals have a variety of adaptive abilities and social skills that help them coexist in their surroundings and interact with other species. It is suggested that teachers use this resource when instructing.
