Briefly explain how the following terms are related to one another in the topic of evolution: extinction, natural selection, phylogeny, speciation, niche, mutation, mimicry, adaptation, and survival of the fittest.

A niche is like a species's somewhat specific purpose. Like whale sharks have the niche of controlling krill/plankton populations

In terms of evolution:
Extinction occurs when a species is not fit enough
Natural selection occurs for the fittest species
Phylogeny shows the evolutionary pathway for many species and the common ancestors
Speciation is the evolution of a certain species over time
Niche is the role of an individual in the ecosystem
Mimicry is a mechanism for surivival
Adaptation is a mechanism for survivial
Survival of the Fittest is essentially the theory of natural selection. where the most reproductively fit species survive
