Benefits Of Natural Selection

Decent Essays
Natural selection is a change in organism over time that results in the rise of a new species. Natural selection drives the evolution of species by picking the ones that possibly have better benefits and can survive better. An example that shows how natural drives the evolution of species is the beetles. The beetles have two different colors that they can inherit from their parents. They can be in the color green or brown. The beetles will get eaten by crows depending on the environment they are in. If the beetles live on leaves the best option is to be the color green because then the crows won't be able to see the green beetle as much as they will be able to see the brown one. To better understand what natural selection is, I want to introduce

    methods of adaptation that take place amongst organic species: natural and artificial selection. Instinctually, one may declare something as “natural” when it has not been tampered by direct human interference, and “artificial” when human intervention has changed the physical condition of that original characteristic. When comparing the two, many tend to favor the ease of efficiency that artificial selection has to offer. Natural selection – on the other hand – takes hundreds of years before an actual…

    ways of selection in every living organism. Gattaca is about a guy, Vincent Freeman, who is born and they detect that disorders will occur in his 30 years of living. His younger brother, Anton Freeman, is given the “good” genes by a process called artificial selection. Artificial selection is a process done by man, where they close the mating process and the traits that go along with it are chosen. Natural selection is the inheritance by chance, where organisms earn traits that will benefit them and…

    mechanisms of evolution are mutation, gene flow, genetic drift and natural selection. These mechanisms are based upon the changes that occur within an organism’s gene pool and how they affect those organisms and their survivability. Some of these mechanisms of evolution move quickly and affect large populations while others are slow moving and affect small populations. Not all of the evolutionary mechanisms are positive and benefit the population’s long term survival. Commonly these negative effects…
