Clematis plants use their leaves to twist around twigs or stems of other plants. In areas where competition for sunlight is fierce, climbing plants use their tendrils to help them climb above other plants to reach the Sun’s rays. Lianas and strangler fig trees are examples of rain forest climbing plants. Built-In Firefighters Many prairie plants have adapted to fire. Prairie grasses have growing structures below the ground that are protected from fires. Many oak trees have very thick bark that doesn’t burn easily.
