    In evolutionary terms, we define macroevolution as evolution at or above species level. It means either splitting of a species into two species (cladogenesis) or change of a species over time into another species (anogenetic speciation).



    Coevolution is a change in the genetic composition of one species (or group) in response to a genetic change in another. More generally, the idea of some reciprocal evolutionary change in interacting species is a strict definition of ...
