Definition of Macroevolution:
As macroevolution we consider the long term formation of different species from common ancestors. It is a scale of analysis of evolution in separated gene pools.[1] Macroevolution refers to any evolutionary change below the level of species, and refers to changes in the frequency within a population or a species of its alleles (alternative genes) and their effects on the form, or phenotype, of organisms that make up that population or species. It can also apply to changes within species that are not genetic.[2]
This is the common definition for Macroevolution, other definitions can be discussed in the article
