Speciation

 

Speciation is the occurrence where a new species is formed.  Speciation can be caused by genetic mutation, adaptation to predation, or be the result of environmental changes that effect change in a species sufficiently to cause anatomical differentiation from its host species and usually prevents interbreeding with the host species.
