Speciation can occur through morphological adaptation, behavioral differences, geographic isolation, and sexual selection or girl power.

    Many examples of morphological adaptations that can lead to speciation exist in plants. Some plants have flower parts adapted to fit body parts of a specific pollinator. For example, in a given population of organisms there is genetic variation. If I have a favorable mutation that allows me to exploit my ...
