ATTRACTING VARIATION may help in GENERATIONS As Organisms with the MORE of the organisms in MORE and that population will pass, DISPLAY more DESIRABLE TRAITS will attract more MATES thereby passing along those TRAITS to their of the organisms within This will continue until the MAJORITY that population are better ADAPTED ENVIRONMENT. This is called to their NATURAL SELECTION. MORE MORE and As generations pass, organisms within that population will display the DESIRABLE TRAITS and will attract more mates. This is called SEXUAL SELECTION. These two processes often occur SIMULTANEOUSLY in a process known as SPECIATION, in a population, known as MICROEVOLUTION, may eventually lead to the creation of a NEW species, or or the division of a species.
