Definition of Adaptation

What is an Adaptation?

Adaptation: Any feature produced via a developmental process (natural selection in evolution) for its current function — or to do its current purpose better. Adaptive processes are the ones we use everyday to keep things functioning in normal ways — improvements towards known and understood goals/purposes.
