Mass extinction events and an organism's unique adaptations mark the history of evolution, both of which may lead to adaptive radiation.
Social forces appear to have directed much of the evolution of humanity but we are still subject to natural selection.
Primate taxonomy (see books: phylogeny, taxonomy, systematics) is in a state of flux due to the discoveries made in primate genetics.
The evolution of a species is linked to the environment.
Adaptation is a continuous response to the environment by changeable species.
( Adaptive radiation is the evolution from an unspecialised ancestral stock of many different species that adapt to a variety of ecological roles (see books)).
