Is evolution an individual or population level phenomenon? Explain.

  • biology - evolution -

    Since evolution occurs over generations, it would be a population phenomenon.

    However, you can also consider that an individual "evolves" as s/he matures from childhood to maturity and later old age.

    However, in the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    Try searching under "evolution."

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
