What is the difference between macroevolution and microevolution?


Wiki User

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 evolutionary change at or above the level of species whereas Microevolution refers to any change below the level of species. Evolution from reptile to bird is one example.
