WARNING!!!!!!! **DO NOT Use DOGS or PEACOCKS For your SCENARIO**
Dogs are bred by humans so not a good choice for natural selection and Peacocks are a better choice for sexual selection than natural selection.
Open the attached document and read it carefully and then submit your completed scenario. A scenario is a step by step telling of how this came to be using the STEPS of the natural selection PROCESS. If these steps are not apparent in your scenario YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE CREDIT. I am really serious about this. Students who rush through this assignment do not do well and do not receive credit – a big part of your grade is showing that you have studied the steps in the natural selection process and are now applying them to your example. REMEMBER your scenario doesn’t have to be what actually happened it only has to show a logical application of the steps of natural selection. DO NOT RESEARCH A PARTICULAR TRAIT OF A PARTICULAR SPECIES AND COPY WHAT YOU FIND – I guarantee you will not get credit for this type of response because you will not be writing about it in the way the assignment asks you to apply the steps.
Remember Natural Selection is a process. so your job is to show that you understand the steps in this process by applying the steps to a specific trait for a specific animal or plant do not talk about more than one trait. For example, don’t write about a lion’s claws and it’s size just choose one feature.
