  • natural selection and selective breeding
    • survival of the fittest
    • process that caused evolution
    • living things have to compete for resources
    • some varieties of a certain species will have better chance of survival
    • the varieties that survive will have an increased chance of reproducing
    • reproducing with good variation increases the chance of survival for the next generation
    • the "best" features are naturally selected and the species become more adapted to their environment
    • selective breeding is where humans choose the feature they want to appear in the next generation
    • with selective breeding usually gives desirable characteristics instead of helping survival
