Unnatural Selection: Part One

Natural selection is the key mechanism in evolution. It is the ‘selection’ of desirable traits that allow for plants and animals to best adapt to their surroundings.

As mother nature steps aside and we humans begin to shape the world, these plants and animals must adapt to living with us, rather the slower natural change of nature.
