A Look at Life: Forms Wonderful and Beautiful
The forms of life make sense when viewed through the lens of natural selection. Under stress, forms can be pushed, stretched, or squashed; genetic accidents crop up, and survival and successful reproduction define the next generation. As landscapes and climates change, plants and animals adapt or become extinct. In greater Baja California, the climate can be harsh and variable. Cycles of abundance and scarcity alternate from land to sea. The ability to survive these cycles will decide the fate an individual, perhaps of an entire species.
