Adaptive Radiation
By
Stella M. Turk MBE

DNA

 

 

Genes wrap themselves in various guises

- In different shapes, colours and sizes.

Adaptations within the basic designs

Gradually build new inheritance lines

That inhabit the waters, the air and the land

The hot springs, ice caps and burning sand.

Those living freely are invaded by parasites

- The worms, the fleas the lice the mites

That exploit their skin, feathers and scales,

Their stomachs, heads and even their tails.

Biodiversity creates still more diversity

And new ways of living arise from adversity
