5 Principles of Natural Selection

1.  Organisms produce more offspring than can survive.

2.  Variations exist between members of a population.

3.  Variations are passed down to offspring.

4.  Individuals with helpful variations (adaptations) are more likely to survive and reproduce.

5.  Over time, offspring of individuals with helpful variations make up more of a population.
