  1. Natural Selection
    The most critical mechanism of evolutionary change, first decribed by Charles Darwin , refers to genetic change or changes in frequencies of certain traits in populations due to differential reproductive success between individuals.
  2. 5 facts 3 inferences of NAT SELECT
    • f1Potential exponential population increase.
    • f2but populations in steady state.
    • f3 resource limited, esp, food,space, and mate
    • f4 uniqueness of individuals within population.
