Why there are so many animal species: Scientists have found the answer

(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists at the University of Cologne and Osnabrück have found that chaos is an important factor in biodiversity. In other words, it contributes to the fact that there are so many kinds of animals.

Scientists have demonstrated on biological systems with one species that even under absolutely constant external conditions, chaotic unpredictable dynamics can occur in systems.

In general, the uneven dynamics of the number of individuals in a population can significantly affect the coexistence of species.

The observed phenomenon has fundamental implications for understanding evolutionary processes, since the potential coexistence of competing species or cell lines with changing numbers is an important basis for high biodiversity on Earth.

This may explain why such a huge diversity of species has arisen on our planet.
