In reply to the previous Marc, do you think that green mammals would
ever arise?
What I believe is that evolution has stopped in terms of new phyla but
speciation may well be adapting primarily to the biochemical level.  Tell
me if you think Im wrong!  Has the world reached its maximum number or
variety of phyla that evolution could have developed over its history?
Also, if this is the case, why?  Because the world cant sustain more 
variety?  I can not say how many years it took for humans to develope from
apes, but do you honestly think it is possible that such a dramatic change 
in form can arise after the same period of time from now?
