What type of crust will subduct under another and why? Oceanic will subduct under continental crust because it is more dense.
What land feature is formed by a divergent boundary? Mountains are formed at divergent boundaries.
What might happen to organisms after a devastating change has occurred? The organisms might die and secondary succession would have to take place again.
