The state of organisms close to suspended animation is called hidden life. Explain the biological meaning of this phenomenon. Give specific examples from the life of plants and animals.
1) In a state of a slowed-down metabolism, organisms sharply increase their resistance to adverse factors and spend energy sparingly.
2) Examples of anabiotic conditions in plant life are winter dormancy of plants, shedding of foliage in drought conditions, and preservation of seeds and spores in the soil.
3) Examples of anabiotic conditions in the life of animals are the torpor of insects and inhabitants of shallow water bodies, the hibernation of brown bears and rodents.
