Evolutionary divergence refers to how different species are able to evolve from the a single species, as the result of populations becoming isolated from the rest of the species. If these isolated populations are exposed to different environmental demands, new species may evolve. A species of butterfly may have yellow wings. Imagine the destruction of the butterflies? habitat and that part of the population leaves the habitat for a new one. If the new habitat has different environmental pressures than the previous habitat, this population of butterflies will develop new adaptations in order to survive. For example, if the new habitat is barren and sandy, the butterfly may evolve a new wing color, that will help it blend in with its new environment. In this manner, a new species of butterfly evolves. In this science fair project, you will create a display on evolutionary divergence.
