According to ezinereligion, in 2007, the population of Ecuador was estimated to be over 13 million people, composed mainly of Mestizo and Amerindian ethnic groups. The official language was Spanish but several other languages were also spoken. The economy was largely based on exports of petroleum, bananas and shrimp. In terms of foreign relations, Ecuador had close ties with its neighbors Colombia and Peru and maintained diplomatic relations with several other countries such as the United States, Spain and France. Politically, Ecuador was a presidential republic led by President Alfredo Palacio since 2005 until his term ended in 2007. Following his term Rafael Correa became President in 2007 and is still in power today.
Ecuador. The year was completely marked by the preparations for the drafting of a new constitution. On November 29, the Constituent Assembly convened and announced immediately that the regular National Congress, during the six months of work on a new constitution, would cease to function and the ongoing legislative work be overseen by a special congressional committee. Only after a referendum is held on the new constitution will elections for a new national congress be announced. The Prosecutor General and the Auditor General were also replaced.
According to CountryAAH, Quito is the capital city of Ecuador. The measures were fully in line with the efforts to renew democracy in the country which the government has long since announced. aims to replace the old corrupt party system with a new, “the geometry of a new power” and, in vague terms, introduce socialism. The opposition instead criticized the newly elected President Rafael Correa for authoritarianism and despotism, and made the now-common accusation of imitation of Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez in Latin America. They even called on the military to defend the democratic order. President Correa, however, reaped one political success after another during the year. After being installed in his office on January 15, he received a clear sign from Congress to hold a referendum on the drafting of a new constitution, to which 82 percent of voters said yes on April 15. Then the traditional party system really seemed to have been crushed in the September 30 general election, “the mother of all clashes,” as President Correa rhetorically called it. The government coalition Movimiento Alianza País (MAP) received 70 percent of the vote, corresponding to 80 out of 130 seats in the Constitutional Assembly, and together with the support parties Pachakutik (the Conaies political branch of the Indian organization) and Movimiento Popular Democrático (MPD) have a comfortable majority.

According to finches: the species of animals born in this way
The islands have never had a land connection to the mainland and the species of animals that live there have in time come either by drifting or flying for almost a thousand kilometers. No predators have come to the islands. When the famous naturalist Charles Darwin visited the islands in 1830, his attention was drawn to the differences between the finch species on different islands: some had a handsome beak capable of splitting awkward nuts, others snatched the best insects with a small beak, a few used a cactus spike to dig insects. Probably the same “original milk” from the mainland had developed in different circumstances with the best characteristics to adapt to that new place of residence.
Darwin realized that there is an inherent variation in species and that individuals produce more offspring than the environment can sustain, with these offspring having to fight for their existence and the individuals best adapted to their environment surviving: this is how the species changes. Darwin compared the finches of the islands to the birds of England and found that these variants corresponded in England to several completely different species of birds. Not only the finches, but also the other nineteen different animals on the island were evidence of such a birth, or evolution, of new species and races. Darwin introduced his theory of this in his book ‘The Birth of Species’ in 1859. The islands have a natural science research institute and nature center bearing his name.
