Evolution is the change in traits of biological organisms over time due to natural selection and other mechanisms.

Evolution and Evolutionary may refer to:

  • Evolution (term), accumulation of change, continuous directional change; predominantly used in biology to refer to change over generations, and in other disciplines (including astronomy, chemistry, culture, economics, linguistics, philosophy, etc.) to refer to system change over time

Biological evolution[edit]

  • Evolutionary biology, sub-field of biology concerned with study of evolutionary processes that produced diversity of life on Earth

Fundamentals[edit]

  • Macroevolution, change above level of species, including speciation, anagenesis, and extinction
  • Microevolution, change within species or populations, due to mutation, selection, gene flow, and genetic drift
