Ancestor:Descendants:

Ovi Island, which split from the main land only a few million years before this evolution took place, was controlled by two main species of plants, the thistleberry and the speckled berry plant, as well as the stickyballs. As these two plants competed on the vast island evolution started taking its course and an arms race began. Thistleberries that grew taller and shaded their smaller ancestors using widespread leafs had more chance of survival. These evolved into the shading-leafed berry that replaced its ancestor. Other than this simple adaptation a greater amount of spores per plant evolved helping them become the dominant species on the island ruling over 85% of it. The speckled berry plants were driven to small niches where they originally had a greater spread in.
