Evolution by Artificial Selection
A change in the genetic composition of a population as a result of humans selecting which individuals breed, typically with a preconceived set of traits in mine.
Evolution by Natural Selection
A change in the genetic composition of a population over time as a result of the environment determining which individuals are most likely to survive and reproduce.
an individual's ability to survive and reproduce
a trait that improves an individual's fitness
a change in the genetic composition of a population over time as a result of random mating
