"The Mutants" depicts a species that moves regularly up and down the scale of Evolutionary Levels in response to cyclic changes in their home planet's climate. In an aversion of fiction's usual human chauvinism, the Human Alien form is explicitly at the most "primitive" level in the scale, with Insectoid Aliens above them, and the top rung.

Evolution in organisms occurs through changes in heritable traits—the inherited characteristics of an organism. In humans, for example, eye colour is an inherited characteristic and an individual might inherit the "brown-eye trait" from one of their parents.

Inherited traits are controlled by genes and the complete set of genes within an organism's genome (genetic material) is called its.

Evolution may be slow, but it is terribly effective. ~ The Urantia Book, Evolution is a cosmic technique of growth. ~ The Urantia Book, Organic evolution is a fact; purposive or progressive evolution is a truth which makes consistent the otherwise contradictory phenomena of the ever-ascending achievements of evolution.

The Urantia Book. In evolutionary theory, macroevolution involves common ancestry, descent with modification, speciation, the genealogical relatedness of all life, transformation of species, and large scale functional and structural changes of populations through time, all at or above the species level (Freeman and Herron ; Futuyma ; Ridley ).from t.

Human evolution, the process by which human beings developed on Earth from now-extinct zoologically, we humans are Homo sapiens, a culture-bearing upright-walking species that lives on the ground and very likely first evolved in Africa aboutyears ago.

We are now the only living members of what many zoologists refer to as the human tribe, Hominini, but there is .Recent publications have given an overview of the years of research into co-evolution after the Origin of species. "Specializations in interactions with other species is the root cause why the world has millions of species rather than thousands".

The theory of evolution has a strong influence on classificatory procedures: this tutorial is about classification above the species level.
