  Specialists vs. generalists

Was catching last part of a story of Irish elk extinction on Discovery channel. These animals had evolved to be highly specialised and successful, but then climate changed and their specialisation became a problem - they couldn't evolve fast enough to survive.

Thinking of specialists vs. generalists in fast changing economies :)
