The Hawaiian island chain is volcanic, and newer volcanoes emerged from the ocean to the southeast. As a rule, ancestral hawaiian species groups occupy older islands and derived populations occupy younger islands. What does this imply about the process of speciation on these island?
Explanation:- speciation simply means formation of new species from older ones. The ancestral hawaiian species groups occupy older islands and derived population occupy younger islands. This means during the process of speciation the favourable environmental at new islands resulted in younger population to occupy these islands and speciation has occurred on these islands.

Consider the age of the various Hawaiian Islands given below in millions of years. Remember, the formation of the Hawaiian Islands reflects: 1) the movement of the Pacific plate, and 2) stationary volcanic hotspot activity over time. Which direction is the Pacific plate currently moving? Maps are plan or bird's eye views of the earth's surface. Here, the top of the figure is north, and the bottom of the figure is south. The left side of the figure is west,...
