|Survival Strategies of Nature (2008)|
|An Adder and a Hedgehog are challenging each other: surprisingly - although the snake is poisonous - the Hedgehog is one of the biggest enemies of the Adder due to the spines for defense and its immunity against the snake's poison.|
|Attack and defense are two opposite forms of behaviour in nature, leading to one goal: the survival of an organism within a certain environment.
These diverse strategies of survival have been investigated in detail by showing examples of specialized plants and animals as well as their individual lifestyle within the ecosystem: camouflage and cooperation, speed and strength, warning colours or weapons are only a few of the many fascinating aspects in ecological research.
This huge variety of survival skills has ever been an inspiration
for scientists, but also for creative minds - like artists, designers and actors. Let us find out more about "Survival Strategies of Nature" !
