Quiz: Test Your Knowledge About Adaptation of Temperature

Let’s start the quiz

Temperature is influenced by altitude, latitude, topography, vegetation, and slope. The vertical gradient of temperature over the earth's surface is called the lapse rate/ decrease in temperature. Adaptation is the characteristic of living form which develops over a period of time and enables them to survive and reproduce within the limits of a particular environment in order to live successfully. Most of the organism lives in a narrow range of temperature that is 25 to 35-degree celsius. In ectotherms/ cold-blooded organisms, high/ low temperature causes inactivity or even death of an organism. In some organisms body temperature remains fixed, they are endotherms/ warm-blooded. So take this quiz and know more about the adaptation of temperature.
