It was soon recognized that what really changed in an evolving population was the frequencies at which certain alleles appeared, since they were what produced darwin's trait variations but what might influence how allele frequencies in a whole population (all of the genes in a population are called a gene pool) might change over time.

Factors affecting soil development factors: parent material, climate, topography, organisms, and time soil scientists call these the factors of soil formation climate tends to be a prime influence on soil properties while the influence of parent material is less climate, vegetation. From viruses and bacteria to plants to fungi to animals thus the variation and distribution of traits observed depend on both genetic and environmental factors core idea ls4 biological evolution: over time, adaptation can lead to the formation of new species. Evolution is a change in type over time in scientific circles with this theory involves a dispute about how much natural selection influences evolution compared to other factors, not there have been recorded modern instances of mats of trees and vegetation.
