Fantastic specialization of living organisms

The planet we live on screams specialization. Every single organism you see is specialized, one more than the other, but they all found their niche and adjusted to it. In some cases, this means they have very remarkable features you rarely see in other species. In other cases, it meant the difference between life above the water surface and a completely barren planet. Let me take you on a stroll and show you some wonderful specializations on this planet.

The effect of the environment on living organisms

Natural environments are subject to weather, location, height, if water is nearby and what kind of water this is the neighboring environment, and so much more. These factors affect what plant species can grow in an area. And these, in their turn, affect what animals can live in that specific area. Taking all the other factors into account. Evolution is a way to make sure that species can keep surviving. It’s a process of elimination. If you can’t keep up with changes, or your new evolutionary trait is useless, it, or you, will likely die out.

Bio-luminescence for creatives, the magical world of organic light.

Bio-luminescence is a magically beautiful phenomenon that’s for many people a rarity to see. Bio-luminescence is an emission of light from an organism, that emits this light for its survival and/or reproduction. It’s a biochemical mechanism that involves a chemical process, resulting in a cold light. Instead of it creating heat, the reaction will create light instead.
Although bio-luminescence is rarely seen, it’s fairly common. Both on land and in the ocean. However, these events take place around specific times of the year, making it hard to actually seek them out. Also, a lot of bio-luminescent organisms have a relatively faint light. This means they can only be seen at night when no flashlights are used, or light pollution is nearby. Nonetheless, it’s an absolutely wonderful phenomenon and worth it to seek out when you have the chance!
