I say microevolution is evolution that occurs within a genus - which includes speciation (I think I've got that right).
Macroevolution is the evolution of one genus into another genus, and any evolution above the level of genus.

The answer to this question is the same as the answer to the question, "What does 'kind' mean?"


I'm a Old Earth creationist, and I think the Genesis "kind" refers to, not the original creatures God created, but to the "kinds" that exist now (or more precisely, the "kinds" that existed at the time Genesis was written).
