new essay using chapter 31 only open book due tomorrow

Open response question on plants Plants have evolved different anatomical structures to deal with a variety of environmental conditions. A. Choose and discuss two physical adaptations evolved by plants that help them to deal with their environment, each one a different environmental condition. Include the adaptation, the kind of plant that has it, and how the adaptation solve a particular problem. B. Also choose one adaptation in plants that can respond to changes in environmental conditions to help them regulate homeostasis. Discuss how the adaptation helps them regulate homeostasis. c. Plants use spores, seeds in cones and fruits in flowering plants to do sexual reproduction. Discuss how a plant can do asexual reproduction by using one of its body parts. Include the name of the plant, what modified body part is used, and how it works to reproduce.
