Contrast the hypothesis of punctuated equilibria with that of gradualism?

punctuated equilibria accounts for the gaps in the fossil record. Species evolve quickly during relatively short periods. Tiny changes in a species gradually add up to major changes over very long periods of time. Gradualism proposes that evolution occurs slowly but steadily. These periods of rapid change are separated by long periods of little or no change.
