Is micro evolution different than evolution?
Evolution is a general term meaning how species change over time.
This can be split into two groups- micro-evolution and macro-evolution.
Micro-evolution is the change within a species. For example, as humans we are slowly getting taller- however our short ancestors and ourselves were not different species.
Macro-evolution is the change between species, for example the transition from apes to humans.
The fundamental difference between these two types of evolution, other than the fact that one is between species and one is inside a species, is that micro-evolution is accepted everywhere as we can see it happening today, it also does not contradict with various creation accounts from religion. Macro-evolution on the other hand is not accepted by everyone as we cannot see it happening. It also goes against creation accounts such as the one of Genesis in which God created all the creatures as they are today- not as different oes that evolved into todays life on Earth.
You are an example of human micro-evolution as the population of humans has changed allele frequency over time. Micro-evolution is just evolution; change over time. Read More

Micro-evolution is not only a part of macro-evolution, it is the same mechanism as macro-evolution. Macro-evolution includes speciation, as a result of continuing micro-evolution. Read More
The difference between micro and macro evolution is that micro evolution does not involve creation any new allele while macro evolution involves creation of the new alleles. Read More

Your question is a bit too broad. There is actually just one Theory of Evolution, that encompasses many different biological disciplines. Some people, particularly Creationist or Intelligent Design advocates, try to separate Evolution in Macro-Evolution and Micro-Evolution, but that is really a false division invented to forward there religious agenda. Read More
Evolution is sometimes described as macro-evolution, which is the long-term evolution of an entire new species, and micro-evolution, which is largely to do with less significant evolutionary changes within a species. Many creationists accept the existence of micro-evolution, but say that macro-evolution does not occur. Read More
Micro-evolution is a perspective on evolution, just life macro-evolution is a perspective on evolution. Micro-evolution is evolution seen at small scales; macro-evolution is evolution seen at larger scales. But they're both perspectives on the same process: reproductive variation and differential reproductive success causing divergence between populations. Read More
Micro-evolution is technically defined as evolution within a species, anything up to speciation without actual speciation. Macro-evolution is all evolution starting with speciation. It is important to note that these terms do not refer to different processes: they describe the same process, evolution. The only difference is an arbitrary line drawn by humans, like the line drawn between a walk around the block and a cross-county hike: they both refer to the process of walking… Read More

If you use the micro-macro dichotomy then no Speciation is macro evolution. To be precise, biologists, though many biology texts do not conform, say evolution and speciation. Read More
Macro-evolution is a large scale perspective on the effects of evolution, just as micro-evolution is a small scale perspective on the effects of evolution. Evolution produces continuous divergence. Divergence between the genome of one generation of a population and a specific ancestral genome, and divergence between sibling branches stemming from the same ancestor. If one focuses on the variation and divergence occurring within a species, it is micro-evolution that one is studying. When one zooms… Read More

When micro-evolution occurs over many generations as inherited characteristics lead to changes in populations what has occurred?
Macro-evolution. Or, more accurately, speciation. Read More
Micro-evolution is basically evolution, ie. changes in allele frequencies, studied at the scale of a single population or species. One way to do this is to count the incidence of a particular set of traits in a population, and then to repeat the count at intervals exceeding one average life-cycle. If you're seeing a shift in the proportion of individuals carrying those traits, then you've witnessed evolution at work. Read More
Some would call that microevolution. I would not. Some divide evolution into micro and macro. Evolutionary biologists prefer to use the terms evolution and speciation. Read More
What is a statement about the rates of evolution for different species that is in agreement with the theory of evolution?
For example: "Different species may or may not have different rates of evolution." That statement is consistent with the theory of evolution. There are many others. Your question is unclear. Read More
It isn't. Evolution is just something that happens where you have populations of organisms. To any individual organism doesn't matter one hoot that its distant ancestor was different than itself, or that its remote descendants will be different again. Read More

By and large, evolution does not really affect people since it takes very many generations for even a minor evolutionary change to occur. The most obvious exception is the evolution of viruses and bacteria. Because these micro-organisms have such short lives, many generations occur in less than one year. So, micro-organisms can sometimes evolve - or mutate - into something rather different to last year. For example, we may have built up immunity to last… Read More

First, I should mention that 'micro-evolution' is not a process in itself. Rather, it is a perspective on the effects of evolution. 'Micro-evolution' is those effects seen from close-up; by 'zooming out' one sees those same results in a wider scope called 'macro-evolution'. All evolution is driven by genetic variation and natural selection. Natural selection drives evolution by filtering out some variations while promoting others, thereby directing the slow change of morphology and behaviour of… Read More
What is the difference between biological evolution and geological evolution and technological evolution?
Biological evolution is very different than any other type of "evolution." When someone refers to "technological evolution" or "geological evolution" they mean "geological change over time." Biological evolution is a much more complex process that involves the inheritance of traits and natural selection. Needless to say, rocks and computers don't "evolve" the same way organisms do.

The evolution of different forms in the same lineage when exposed to different selective pressures is called?

The difference is one of scale and scope. This is best explained using a single species and its descendants as an example: Every change that happens to the species up to the point of speciation would be classified as "micro-evolution". But after speciation, divergence would not stop: the two new species would continue to diverge from one another, possibly resulting in yet more branching events, more new species. The scope would increase to include all… Read More

When we're discussing Darwin's evolutionary theory, we're discussing only one "type of" evolution: evolution by reproductive variation and natural selection. The term 'evolution' is also used in cosmology and astronomy (eg. the evolution of the cosmos, the galaxy, or stellar evolution). But when used in this context, the term refers to something entirely different than what Darwin was talking about, and what evolutionary theory is about. Read More
Yes. There is no set rate for evolution; the speed by which populations diverge behaviourally, morphologically and genetically is determined entirely by circumstance. Even different genes in the same population gene pool can have different rates of evolution. Read More

Miroevolution is the change in allele frequency overtime in populations of organisms not leading to speciation; below the taxa level. Macroevolution is speciation. This terminology is not favored by many biologists because there is some implied difference in processes. That is to get from micro to macro. Actually evolution long enough is macro. So, many biologist prefer the terms. Evolution Speciation instead of micro and macro Read More
