Which of the following organisms have existed on earth for the longest period of time? single-celled organisms
Green moths have a brown offspring. The brown moths are usually seen more quickly by the birds and eaten sooner.Imagine that increased pollution caused the pine trees in the forest to be heavily covered with brown particles.
