What is the difference between macroevolution and microevolution?

Without getting into the merits of Darwinism and anti Darwinists. The question deals with the origins of a species branch so to speak. Macroevolution is used to refer to any e (MORE)

What exactly does the concept of microevolution mean?

Microevolution is the changes in allele frequencies due to mutation, natural or artificial selection, gene flow, and genetic drift. These changes occur over a long period of t (MORE)

Can microevolution form a new species?

Yes. In fact, microevolution, or allelic variance, is *the*mechanism by which new species emerge. Such an emergence is part ofwhat some people call macroevolution. In other wo (MORE)
