▯ Formation of Species The modern synthesis: o Established that the production of variation and the shaping of it were both necessary to explain adaption o Emphasized the mathematical aspects of evolutionary theory and brought ecology, speciation, systematics and paleontology into the fold Two types of evolutionary change: o Macroevolution: evolutionary change that results in the production of new species. It operates over much longer time scales o Microevolution: evolution occurring below the species level. It usually operates over much shorter time scales and is sometimes synonymous with “popula
