Plants & Animals

Posted on by

This achievement standard involves the description of animal behaviour and plant responses in relation to environmental factors.

Animal behaviour and plant responses will be selected from those relating to:

  • orientation (tropisms, nastic responses, taxes, kineses, homing, migration)
  • timing (annual, daily, lunar, tidal)
  • interspecific relationships (predation, parasitism, mutualism, commensalism, competition for resources)
  • intraspecific relationships (territoriality, cooperative interactions, reproductive behaviours, hierarchical behaviour, competition for resources).

The relationship of environmental factors to behaviour/response may be in terms of the process involved or the adaptive significance.
