An adaptive feature of plants in the savanna is

A. fissured bark

B. few grasses

C. tall trees

D. long lifespan




Adaptive features of plants in the savanna have to do with those attributes that aid their survival therein. The savanna can simply be described as with plenty of grasses and scattered trees. In the savanna, there is strict adherence to dry and rainy seasons. A good quantity of rain falls during the rainy season, and there is serious dryness during the dry season.

So, for trees in the savannah, they have long tap roots to draw out during the dry season, they also have thick fissured bark to prevent water loss and possible damage from bushfires.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Fissured bark is an adaptive feature of tress in the savannah. So, A is correct.
  2. No, there are plenty of grasses in the savannah. B is incorrect.
  3. Some trees here are tall, others short; the tallness of trees is not particularly a special feature found here. So, C is also incorrect.
  4. D is also incorrect; some trees here are short-lived.


You may please note that:

  • Fissured bark is a term used to describe the rough kind of bark found in trees like mangoes.
