Selective Breeding

Combining traits of different animals can result in new breeds. This set of slides supports you as you teach selective breeding as part or a genetics or evolution unit. Chickens are the highlighted example. Traits to consider are the number, color, and size of eggs and yolk, as well as disease resistance and interactions. Artificial and natural selection are compared as well.
