Description:

The issue-focused, peer-reviewed article explains how the environment plays a major role in the evolution of species by: dramatic environmental changes triggering extinction as well as speciation, species arising after splitting from an ancestral species when they acquire new adaptations to a changing environment, and species stabilizing for millions of years followed by abrupt disappearance when their ecosystem is disrupted.
