Geomorphosis is the adaptation of the population or subspecies to a specific environment which is different from adaptations to other environments by other populations or subspecies.
This adaptation results in phenotypic polymorphism which is subject to a specific natural selection. Over time it leads to an inherited change in the genome.
Geomorphosis can lead to the emergence of a new species.
