An Evolve-By Date - Opinionator Blog
November 24, 2009 | NYTimes.com | By OLIVIA JUDSON. why does
evolution keep failing? The question matters as never before. We humans
are busily changing the environment for most of the beings on the
planet, and often, we are doing so very fast. To know what effect this
will have, we badly need to know how readily different creatures can
evolve to deal with changes to their environment. For if we’re not
careful, many groups will soon be faced with an evolve-by date: if they
don’t evolve rapidly enough to survive in this changing world, they will
vanish.
