PUNCTUATED EQUILIBRIUM

2

In evolutionary theory, the periods of rapid change leading to development of new species are extended over a time line and separated by longer periods of no such change.

PUNCTUATED EQUILIBRIUM: "Punctuated equilibrium states that periods of greater change come along less often than extended periods of stability."
