Birds that are related, such as Darwin’s finches, but that vary in beak size and behavior specially evolved to their habitat are examples of a process called speciation.
Males in many species compete to mate with an adult female, and when they finally gain access to her, will kill off the offspring of other males she has mated with in order to make her more receptive to his advances.

John Ostrom was born and raised in Schenectady, New York. His father was a physician, and...
