Adaptations: Taco Shaped Leaves

Adaptations: Taco Shaped Leaves

with No Comments

The plants found in our region have adapted to our climate, rainfall, slope, wildfire, and more. Laurel Sumac uses the shade of its own leaves (through a taco-shape) to reduce the surface area hit by the sun’s rays. The shade allows the plants to stay cooler and therefore retain more water instead of evaporating it through the stomata.
