I feel like these overlap quite a bit but could someone please give me examples of physiological and behavioural adaptations using the example of a polar bear or a camel?

Behavioural is something the animal would actually 'choose' to do, can't think of an example off the top of my head for those 2 but e.g. a hippo spending time in water because they are too hot. Physiological is something that happens inside their body, e.g. bacteria producing plasmids (I think this is what the CGP book says, if I remember correctly) as they need to develop resistance... Hope this helps
