What are the advantages of artificial selection?
The advantages of artificial selection are really not numerous. There are a few, but they are rarely easy to find. I had to spend hours searching different websites until I could compile a group of five. Here's my group:
Hope my answer helped you!
- Faster evolution, meaning the world will adapt to changes better
- We can create crops resistant to chemicals, therefor they can better and quicker
- In the near future, people will be resistant to many life-threatening diseases
- Near perfect hybrid variety
- New species
Hope my answer helped you!

Humans directly affect artificial selection. They do this by selecting the specific traits that they prefer which they cannot don in a natural selection.
Natural selection is when the traits that make an organism survive and reproduce better in their environment become more common. An example of natural selection would be light… moths changing to dark-colored moths to adapt to their environment. Like the tree barks they live on turning black, they too would turn dark-colored for better survival and an advantage to hide from predators.Artificial selection is intentional breeding for certain traits. An example would be a florist breeding two pretty plants to get a pretty plant..yeah, bad example but you get the idea lol.
Artificial selection is when a human determines how an animal or plant breeds. For example: dog breeding. A breeder will put a male and female dog of the same breed together w…hile the female is in heat in order to get them to breed. S/he chooses a male and female biased on their looks, genetics, and temperament. Natural selection however is when nature determines how an animal breeds. For example: wolves. If the temperature drops below a level which wolves with a thinner coat cannot survive, then they will die and thicker coated wolves survive and breed, resulting in wolf pups with thicker coats.
Human intervention in animal or plant reproduction to ensure that certain desirable traits are represented in successive generations
He noticed a lot of variation in domesticated plants and animals. Darwin saw artificial selection as a means of understanding natural selection.
Selective breeding is known as artificial selection because you are selecting the mates instead of letting them select their own. It's bypassing nature so it's classified …as artificial. Outside persuasion that directly effects the outcome of the natural selection.
Natural selection and artificial selection both involve an organism's traits being determined by how much they're favored. Then, the organisms with favorable traits pass those… traits on to future generations. However, natural selection is caused by survival; the organisms with traits that increase their chances for survival and reproduction pass on their traits. As for artificial selection, humans purposefully decide which traits (like the most colorful one) of an organism to pass on. The similarity of artificial selection and natural selection is that they both can cause changes in the frequency of population.
Artificial selection is when humans choose which individual organisms breed with each other. Natural selection can be interpreted two ways: 1) Organisms breed without human in…terference. 2) It is described as "survival of the fittest," meaning the organism best suited to its environment will be the organism that survives and reproduces. For example, Arctic foxes can survive in extreme conditions due to their adaptations, where other foxes will not survive because they can't handle such harsh climates.
Natural selection is the result of natural occurrences. In an area that gets a lot of snow, small animals that don't blend in with white snow are more likely to be spotted by …predators. Since they would get killed more, they would have less offspring, and the population of that animal would tend towards fur that blends in with white snow. No one reached a hand in to select only white furred animals for breeding, but the effect is the same. Artificial selection is the result of human interference. In this case, some one would reach a hand in to select certain animals to breed. In a garden of flowers, all different colours would normally grow. If a human cut off all non-white flowers before they pollinated, only white flowers would breed, so the garden would become more and more full of white flowers.

Artificial Selection Answer Artificial Selection is the breeding of certain traits (better traits) over other traits. For example, breeding a good male horse with excellen…t racing qualities with a healthy female horse so that the offspring will have the desired traits such as the racing qualities. Another example is breeding good size fruits or vegetable together to keep on getting the good size. Selection done by humans looking to maximize traits in animals under domestication. These traits are not always for the benefit of the organism though. Men raise these animals and mate the ones they think will breed true for a man favored trait and cull the rest of the organisms by killing them, or by not allowing them to breed.
Artificial and natural selection are two matters which are very different however can be easily confused. Natural selection describes the process of evolution. Natural selecti…on occurs when there are two animals of the same species who have slightly different features. For example, thousands of year ago, giraffe's had short necks. However one happened out of chance to be born with a long neck. The giraffe could then reach the leaves and eat what the short-necks could not. It was easier for this giraffe to survive and in times of famine where the other giraffe died of starvation, the long-neck did not. He was best adapted to his environment, and so he survived longer, and could breed. His children carried his long neck gene and so survived more efficiently than short necks. As a result the long-neck giraffe thrived and the population grew, while the short necks died out. Soon, all giraffes had long necks due to their one common ancestor. So: -Mutated baby with long neck born -Child better adapted -Survived -Bred and passed on genes -These survived and bred -Population of long necks grew -Short necks died out due to starvation Due to natural selection, which is the process of these adaptions changing, all giraffe's now have long necks. Artificial selection differs as humans intentional choose mutated offspring and breed them, to create certain characteristics. There is no difference between the processes however evidently survival is not key as the humans look after the animals. The only difference is the key term 'artificial' meaning that there is human interference. Hope this helps lofty
They are both basically the similar, except artificial selection involves human intervention while natural selection is, as the name implies, natural. Nature selects only th…ose organisms with favorable traits that help them survive and are likely to reproduce and pass these traits onto their offspring , so it is called natural selection . When human beings select an organism to produce next generation it is called Artificial selection . Perhaps for coat color or height.
Well, if you are going for breeding animals - if done right, none really If going with allowing the weak to survive when they would die off to natural selection - more of… the unsuccesful traits that are being passed down will continue to being transmitted which can lead to more people with less favorable genetics, such as genetic deseases.
Natural Selection- Where the species develops immunity to the detrimental vagaries of its environment or becomes extinct because of it. Artificial Selection- Where someone i…ntervenes, purposely to aid a species to overcome or negate circumstances that would normally lead it to extinction.
They are not. Cattle (cows and heifers) are bred either via artificial insemination, or natural breeding. .
