About Artificial Selection

Artificial selection is a technique in the breeding of animals and in the cultivation of plants that have desirable inheritable characteristics. Long record of effectiveness of artificial selection also constitutes to further empirical evidence of evolution, it demonstrates how naturally occurring mutations can alter the appearance and other traits of an organism given a selection criterion. If the creation of permanent inheritable mutations was not allowed and the genetic code was not malleable, artificial selection and selective breeding would be impossible.
