Comparative Physiology of Fasting, Starvation, and Food Limitation. Subterranean species generally exhibit specific adaptations to long-term food deprivation and show a higher resistance to starvation than their epigean counterparts.

Environmental adaptation is also the theme of Henderson's contribution . Evolutionary Adaptations to Poikilothermy and Its Ecological Implications. Drought and salinity are two of the most significant abiotic stresses that limit crop productivity.

Environmental adaptation is also the theme of Henderson's contribution who discussed the phylogenetic aspects of the renin-angiotensin system of vertebrates. This system is best known in mammals where it is specialized to deal with particular demands such as blood pressure regulation, sodium excretion, aldosterone output and intrarenal blood flow in the overall regulation of water and electrolyte homeostasis.

The second important evolutionary adaptation to life under seasonally cold conditions is the fine-tuning of plant phenology. The timing of spring activity and autumnal senescence defines the actual length of the growing season. Phenology timing in spring prevents the exposure of active, vulnerable tissue to damaging low temperatures, but it also co-defines the remaining growing season length9.

Adaptations are various adaptations to the inhabitancy, which organism develops during evolutions. Physiological adaptations are changes in physiology of organisms (for example, ability of a camel to provide an organism by moisture by oxidation of fat stocks). Adaptations are developed at different levels of the organization of alive matter. Ability to adaptation is one of basic properties of the alive matter, providing an opportunity of its existence. Ethological adaptations are changes in behaviour (for example, seasonal migrations of mammals and birds, a hibernation confluence of the winter period). Ethlogical adaptations are characteristic for animals.
