[2015] Yadira Compean: Charles Darwin

The natural selection is an individual’s characteristic that allows the individual to survive and create/produce offspring. Natural Selection works by having variation in traits, differential reproduction, and heredity. If there are two different colored insects, it will be the variation in traits. Then there is a differential reproduction, in which the environment cannot support the unlimited growth in population, not all of the individuals will be able to reproduce on their full potential. So if one colored insect is mostly eaten by birds and does not reproduce as much as the other colored insect, so there is more of the other colored insect. So these colored insects are the heredity. That color insect will have the same colored baby, because the trait has the same genetic basis. So in the end, there will be more of the last colored insect, which will be more commonly found in the population. If you have variation, differential reproduction, and heredity, you will have evolution by natural selection as an outcome.
