    What role do you think variations play in the process of evolution?

    Uh. It is a prerequisite for evolution? What precisely do you mean?

    Variation would be a result of Evolution.

    I'm not sure. Is a mutation a result of evolution? :bugeye:

    Surely the initial variance in species would be due to a mutation, and through that mutation species have evolved and become more varied? I'm not 100% lets see what other people think.
