... observe and investigate the patterns and processes of macroevolution by first building unique specimens through gradual, stepwise changes in characters. They then switch specimens with another group and, by observing shared characters, hypothesize the evolutionary relationships of the specimens by drawing...

Among these con- troversies are the level of selection (species, individuals or genes), the power of natural selection, the neutral theory, macroevolution, etc. A major controversy is over the rate...
