Plant Adaptations (Temperate Rainforest)

Most popular literature and textbooks on plant adaptations highlight those species that live in extreme environments such as deserts or alpine-tundra. This presentation examines the plant adaptations found in species associated with temperate rainforests, discussing adaptations to rain, year-round shade, and generally moderate temperature extremes. Several comparisons are made within a few plant groups to illustrate differences. This presentation has a focus on the species of western North America, particularly British Columbia.
