Whether there's genetic variation to help the species adapt.
Age independent (straight line)
Age independent is correct.
Natural selection cannot predict environmental changes/extinction rates.
Rate of extinction varies across species groups.
Species with smaller home range have a higher risk
High extinction rates
New adaptive radiations
Slow recovery (5-10 million years) with low diversity at first.
3 degrees C: 40$ of all species.
Kudzu - engulfs all vegetation around it.
Results in isolation
Contemporary: Relatively patchy
Contemporary: Slower to develop
Contemporary: More due to loss of declining lineages...
Contemporary: ???? Depends on human activity.
