Evolution is a change in the heritable characteristics of biological populations over successive generations. Different characteristics tend to exist within any given population as a result of mutation, genetic recombination, and other sources of genetic variation. The circumstances that determine whether a character should be common or rare within a population constantly change, resulting in the change in heritable characteristics arising over successive generations. It is this process of evolution that has given rise to biodiversity at every level of biological organization, including the levels of species, individual organisms, and molecules. Let's know more about Evolution.
