9. an advantageous trait an organism has for
its environment
13. the idea that evolution occurs in spurts of
rapid change
14. the process by which species change over
time
3. selection the process by which organisms
with favorable variations for their

those variations to the next generation
5. the evolution of a new species from an
existing species
6. the idea that evolutionary change occurs
slowly and steadily over long periods of time
8. the extinction of huge numbers of species
in a fairly short time period
10. the permanent loss of a species
11. isolation an inability of organisms to
