In Evolutionary Biology, a rise of new species is termed as Speciation. When a group of individuals gets separated from their species for a long time and later evolved as a different trait are referred to as a new species.
Factors leading to the rise of new species
As per the evolutionary research, there are many factors that lead to the rise of a new species. Listed below are the few factors:
- Genetic drift.
- Natural selection.
- Genetic mutation.
- Geographical isolation.
- Reproductive isolation.
- Environmental factors on the isolated populations.
- Quantum of genetic variant inherited from one generation to the next generation.
