Life forms adapted to the environmental changes that have taken place over the years to evolve to diverse life forms that are present in planet earth today. The various processes that ensure adaptation of the life forms include evolutions and mutations. There are various environmental factors that have contributed to the evolution of the organisms. All the life forms depend on the environment to obtain the nutrients required for survival. Therefore all life forms have to match up with the environmental changes and this is referred to as adaptation.
There are various environmental changes which have occurred over the years such as changes in climate and seasons, competition, occurrence of infectious diseases and predation. In order to survive with these changes in the environment, the life forms have to change over time in a process referred to as evolution. Since nature is more of cooperative rather than competitive, all the life forms tend to evolve together in a process known as co-evolution in ordre to fit in and not become extinct. The various life forms cooperate in that some provide nutrients and shelter to others and competition only comes in when the organisms obtain their nutrients from the same source.
Mutation is also another factor that has led to the adaptation of the life forms to the environmental changes over time. The process of mutation takes place in reproduction whereby the genetic makeup of the parent is passed on to the offspring. This process is inevitable and naturally occurring and can result to the production of an offspring that is better or worse adapted to the environment. This leads to survival for the fittest whereby only the best suited are able to survive to the reproduction age and the other organisms die before reaching that age. This serves to ensure that all the offsprings produced by have the mutations which enables the life…...

Forms of Business

...Forms of Business Kimberly Smith FIN231_1 February 14, 2016 Instructor McAndrew Forms of Business There are at least five different forms of business. They are proprietorship, partnership, corporation, limited liability company, and cooperative. The three major forms of business are proprietorship, partnership, and corporation. With proprietorship (also known as sole proprietorship), the business is only owned by one person. This person assumes all of the responsibility for the business. They also receive all of the profit. According to Melicher, & Norton (2014), “Proprietorships are the most widely used form although they are generally the smallest organizations in terms of assets”. Almost three fourths of firms in the United States are sole proprietorships. Partnerships are the second largest form. With this form of business, two or more people own the business. The business is for profit. Many times people choose partnership because they need to pool finances, but it is also helpful to share knowledge, property, equipment, or business skills. One person may have the knowledge to run the business, but they need someone else with the finances. In some instances, they may start off as a sole proprietorship, but they change to a partnership in order to expand their company. “A corporation is a legal entity created under state law in the United States with an unending life and limited financial liability to its owners” (Melicher, & Norton,......
