Geographic Isolation of Turtles Grace Maund
Geographic Isolation is when two populations are separated by geographic barriers such as rivers, mountains, or bodies of water.
There are two populations of turtles living in the same area. They can breed and reproduce with each other.
Over time, a river formed and the blue and green turtles were separated by this geographic feature.
The now separated turtle populations adapt to their surroundings differently (physically and/or behaviorally).
Even if the two populations are no longer geographically separated, they can no longer breed with each other because of their different adaptations.
The two turtle populations have become different species due to geographic isolation.
