  1. A new life may be born out of artificial selection or natural selection. ... Artificial selection is the unnatural breeding of either plants or animals. Humans usually initiate this unnatural process to create a more desirable trait or characteristic.

  2. The difference between the two is that natural selection happens naturally, but selective breeding only occurs when humans intervene.

    Explanation:

  3. Explanation:

    Evolution is a gradual change in the inherited traits of a population over many generations. Natural selection is a mechanism where the members of a population best suited to their environment have the best chance of surviving

  4. The difference between the two is that natural selection happens naturally, but selective breeding only occurs when humans intervene. For this reason selective breeding is sometimes called artificial selection.\

  5. The key distinction is that in genetic drift allele frequencies change by chance, whereas in natural selection allele frequencies change by differential reproductive success. If the frequencies of traits in a population change purely by chance , then genetic drift has occurred.

  6. The correct answer would be A)genetic drift happens by chance.

    Both natural selection and genetic drifts are the natural phenomena by which evolution takes place, however, they differ in a way that genetic drift happens by chance whereas natural selection happens as a result of differential reproduction success.

    Natural selection is the process by which organisms with better adaptation for changing environment have better chances of survival and reproduction.

    In contrast, in genetic drift, variation in genotype frequencies of a population takes place as a result of random chance. For example, individuals with a particular gene die or are not able to reproduce.

  7. Evolution is the general process of change over time, in whatever form, while natural selection mechanism that Darwin is famous for discovering

  8. Similarities: Natural Selection and Artificial Selection both result in the alteration of the gene pool. It can also change phenotypes of different species'.

    Differences: Artificial Selection is when a specific trait is not wanted, and so it is not bred.

    For example, humans did not like how yellow peas looked. They liked the healthy looking green better. So, they killed the yellow peas, and bred the green peas with other green pea plants, and right now it is almost completely out of our gene pool.

    Natural Selection is when something naturally occurs, such as a natural disaster, famine, plague, invasive species introduction.

    For example, if 10 camels lived in a desert, but one of them didn't have as good of a metabolism and stayed full longer, then that one would survive, while the others might not.

  9. The key distinction is that in genetic drift allele frequencies change by chance, whereas in natural selection allele frequencies change by differential reproductive success. If the frequencies of traits in a population change purely by chance , then genetic drift has occurred

    Explanation:

  10. Natural selection and selective breeding can both cause changes in animals and plants. The difference between the two is that natural selection happens naturally. But selective breeding only occurs when humans intervene. For this reason selective breeding is sometimes called artificial selection.
