APB C24 Speciation

The formation of new and distinct species in the course of evolution Speciation
Evolutionary change within a species or small group of organisms, especially over a short period Microevolution
Major evolutionary change. The term applies mainly to the evolution of whole taxonomic groups over long periods of time Macroevolution
A group of living organisms consisting of similar individuals capable of interbreeding and producing viable offspring Species
Speciation that occurs when biological populations of the same species become isolated from each other to an extent that prevents or interferes with genetic interchange Allopatric speciation
The process through which new species evolve from a single ancestral species while inhabiting the same geographic region Sympatric speciation
The situation where different species may live in the same area, but properties of individuals prevent them from interbreeding Reproductive isolation
When the number of chromosomes in an organism's cell doubles Polyploidy
A hypothesis holding that the evolution of species proceeds in a characteristic pattern of relative stability for long periods of time interspersed with much shorter periods during which many species become extinct and new species emerge Punctuated equilibrium
