Why the Flora and Fauna of Australia so Unique

Why is the flora and fauna of Australia so unique? Evolution is ultimately an unpredictable process. Although it can be predicted in the short term through knowledge of natural selection and inheritance, long term evolution is randomly altered by the interaction of highly variable factors. Such factors include the randomness of genetic diversity within a species and the process of natural selection acting upon this. Also significantly altering evolution is the unpredictable movement of tectonic...

Ecosystem Preservation Versus Conservation

could easily bring an end to any flora or fauna that might possibly exist within that ecosystem. The flora and fauna will naturally regulate itself through the combined effects of natural native enemies and the weather. One important pro point to ecosystem preservation is that not all ecosystems are identical, as some will contain more flora and fauna than others will. It is especially beneficial if the smaller ecosystems become breached and certain fauna and flora should have their numbers diminish...
