Biology 11 question help :)

Post by xhedgeyx » Fri Jul 31, 2009 3:23 am

1. Suggest a way that being an "early bloomer" might be an advantage for an annual.
( a plant that lives for one year only )
2. Suggest a way that being an "late bloomer" might be an advantage for an annual.
( a plant that lives for one year only )

Please and thanks :)

"help" implies that you at least tried to answer the question. Did you?

typical blooming period (here in pacific nw) is April to August. Spring is warm with rain and sun, and occasional cold-snaps. Summer is hot and dry. So if a plant blooms in spring, what types of conditions is it avoiding by not blooming in summer? Conversely, if a plant blooms in summer, what is it avoiding by not blooming in spring?

Furthermore, how do the conditions of the landscape change over the seasons? What about predation? Do different animals move around according to the season?
