One answer:
Adaptation

When something changes in the structure or function of an organism that enables it to better survive its enviroment.

BTW I like your name :)
"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these".
