AbstractThree modes of evolution are distinguished: 1. evolutionary radiation, 2. opportunistic adaptation, 3. sustained change. Material evidence of evolution is almost non-existent in the first mode, very slight in the second. Opportunistic adaptation is characteristic of the sublittoral benthos; sustained change is associated with low faunal diversity.
