Some plants have special features that help them to repel predators. Other plants can survive and even thrive in hostile environments, such as cold and rocky mountains. In areas of little rainfall, plants known as XEROPHYTES have developed special methods for collecting and storing water. Another group of amazing plant survivors are known as HALOPHYTES. They can endure extremely salty regions, such as salt marshes, salt pans, and sand dunes.
