Adaptation amongst species

"Birds and their Diet" project includes various birds and their diet, consisting of insects and plants. While there is no common adaptation amongst all observed species, there are similar adaptations between the observed birds and plants. All observed bird species adapted to different beak shapes and sizes to accommodate their local resources in terms of food. Example of different beak adaptations are as follows; a seagull observed in Turkey adapted to a curvier, longer beak to catch fish, a parakeet in Mauritius adapted to a sharper beak to eat local seeds and a sparrow in Saudi Arabia adapted to a relatively smaller beak to reach smaller seeds that are inaccessible to other species. Therefore, bird beaks are a common adaptation amongst the project; however, the beak shapes and sizes vary due to the difference in resources amongst our group. In terms of plants, all observed plants are tall, creating a habitat for birds as they nest in their long branches, helping with their diet, producing berries, and seeds.

A unique adaptation for Common Dogwood is that they have adapted to different living conditions in terms of soil. Common Dogwood has adapted to moist soil and dry soil, depending on where they are kept, which is one of the main reasons why Common Dogwood is a widespread species. In other words, Common Dogwood's most unique adaptation is its adaptation over centuries to different terrestrial environments.

Cornus Sanguinea, or more commonly known as Common Dogwood, is one of the many species of the Cornus (Dogwood) genus out of the identified 93 species and belongs to the Cornaceae family. Examples of the different species included in the genus are Bunchberry Dogwood, Flowering Dogwood, and Blackfruit Dogwood. Common Dogwood is closely related to the Japanese Flowering Dogwood and Cornus Monbeigii. Ancestors of Cornus Sanguinea include C.Obliqua, C. ammomum, C.drummondii, and several other species of Dogwood.
