While it's hard to let go of the fact that 150,000 folks died after that tsunami, I find myself highly intriqued by the possibility of how the
ecology will be effected in that area. Evolution is a thing that's continually being shaped as it has been since before earth's existence. It is
evolution itself that formed the earth by scientific approximation. But we can also look at natural selection, which happens on a much smaller scale
than evolution. New species are taking shape everyday, and it happens whenever the geography or inhabitants change. Now that the human population has
drastically decreased in that area, will the wildlife begin a transformation? Diseases are expected, but will new species of bacteria arise with
microscopic organisms being the fastest evolving creatures? I suppose it would be the aquatic life that would have to be considered next, and I wonder
how big the changes have to be before substantial changes can be detected?
