The mind map diagram below illustrates that Adaptations are the result of evolution. As we usually studied in the early science lectures, evolution is a change in species over long periods. The adaptation forming mind map diagram signifies how adaptations occur because a gene mutates or changes by accident. It should be noted here that some mutations can help an animal or plant survive better than others in the species that have not undergone mutation. The mind map diagram further illustrates three types of adaptations - structural, physiological, and behavioral adaptations.
