SpecificationName:University:Lecturer:Date:Purpose:The purpose of this lab report is to evidently show/ explain what would happen if a group of lizards falling in a given species, if a sudden hurricane split the two groups of individuals on an island farther from the mainland.Introduction:Speciation can be defined as the evolutionary process where new biological species of a given organism arise mainly through genetic drift and natural selection. Orator F. Cook was one of the few scientists able to elaborate on speciation as the main cause for the splitting of lineages (also referred to as cladogenesis) (Evans, 2007). This phenomenon is important to cause reproductive isolationHypothesis:Due to difference in geographic position of the two species, both will adapt to their new surrounding and this will result in the same species of organisms to develop new phenotypic characteristics different from the original species.Method:Methods used were mainly observation to identify the type of species that underwent speciation. In our case, Lizards was our case study. I observed lizard species in different continents and islands and noted the change in their phenotypic characteristics as a result of speciation (No Asset Content).Results:My findings on this lab experiment was that during the initial separation, lizards which initially belonged to the same species got separated to an isolated island either by geographic drifts such as, plate tectonics, wea
