Q. 18

Discuss natural selection and artificial selection. What are the implications of the latter on the process of evolution?

Answer :

Natural selection- Natural selection is the rule of the nature and it occurs naturally. The organism that is best suited to the environment and changes and adapts with time is naturally selected by nature.


Artificial selection- It is an artificial way of selecting of organisms and characters by the humans themselves. In artificial selection only those characters are selected that are beneficial to the human economy.
