  • Variation can be defined as the difference between the cells, organisms or group of organisms belonging to a particular species by environmental factors (phenotypic variation) or genetic differences (genotypic variations).
  • It is caused by gene mutations due to certain environmental factors and various combinations of genetic material. 
  • Variation is important because it causes evolution and is the basis of heredity.
  • It is advantageous to a population as it enables few individuals to adapt to the environment changes thus, enabling the survival of the population.
