I changed title and added some quoted material
See subtitle. Seems to me to be what's appropriate for the situation.

Re: Species formation or species preservation? (topic to be moved soon)
While the topic did start off as "Coffee House" material, I see that it's going to head the "Biological Evolution" direction.
Going to move this topic real soon. Please stand by, or you will be trying to post to a closed topic.

(IMO) the question is, how did the cited environment come to be as it is?
Thread moved here from the Coffee House forum.
