What does Speciation mean?Edit
Speciation is the subdivision of a population in which one species becomes two or more speciesEdit
4 Types of Speciation:Edit
1. Allopatric is when species separate ue to isolation 2. Peripatric is when a small population breaks off from the larger population
3. In Parapatric the population is spread over a large geographic area but separated by differences within those environments,
4. Artificial is when new species are created by humans
There is also a fifth type of speciation called Sypatric Speciation but it is considered controversal in the scientific community. It is said that spontaneous speciation occurs within a large population with no physical barriers and all members are in a close proximity to one another.
