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!

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.
They may cause mutations Artifical selection is the process of interntional, or unentitional modeifcation of a species through human actions which encourage the breeding of c…ertain traits over others. Some disadvantages of artificial selection is that it is inhumane, can cause mutations or produce new problems. An example of the inhumane process is the new way of breeding chickens. These chickens are produced without fethers. Critics say the feather-free chickens will suffer more than normal birds. Males might be unable to mate, because they cannot flap their wings, and "naked" chickens of both sexes are more susceptible to parasites, mosquito attacks and sunburn.
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.
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
NO. Both artificial and natural selection are forms of Evolution in general. Both cause variation by selection within a particular population. The only difference is who is do…ing the selection, humans or nature.
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.
Artificial selection is a synonim for selective breeding. It means choosing certain species to reproduce to make a new species or whatever.
They are the same in every way but one: in artificial selection humans are intentionally involved with doing the selecting, while in natural selection no intentional selec…tion is taking place.
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.
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.
No. They function through the exact same mechanisms. The only difference is what controls the environment: whether it is in human hands or left to nature.
Both establish that: 1. There are limited reproductive opportunities 2. Only those organisms with "favorable" traits will be allowed to reproduce and pass the traits onto …their offspring The difference is that artificial selection involves human intervention
They both involve the principle of differential reproductive success. Only in one case, the reproductive success is determined by mindless congruence between phenotypic attrib…utes and the environment, and in the other case, humans make the determination what traits should propagate.
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.
