Storyboard Text

  • Lady Bugs
  • Over Production of Off Spring
  • Variation
  • Lady bugs can come in many different colors and some give better natural advantages over others through natural selection.
  • Selection
  • The first step of natural selection is overproduction of offspring which creates genetic equilibrium in an environment.
  • Adaptation
  • When an environment changes the gene pool of a species can change through natural evolution. In the picture above the environment has changed since a road has been made, destroying the ladybug's habitat. The variation is created by the overproduction of offspring. 
  • Evolution
  • Since the orange ladybugs blend in better with their surroundings they are more likely to survive against the predators which causes selection.
  • This has created an adaptation in the gene pool and caused the orange ladybugs to thrive.
  • This is how a species can evolve after a change in an environment.
